NEVADA, Iowa -- The man convicted of killing a young woman inside the Coral Ridge Mall is asking for a new trial and the request will be heard Monday.
Last month, a jury convicted 23-year-old Alexander Kozak of first-degree murder in the June 2015 death of 20-year-old Andrea Farrington.
Now, Kozak's lawyer has filed a motion to start from scratch.
The lawyer claims prosecutors didn't follow court rules during the original trial.
The motion will be considered at Kozak's sentencing, which is set for Monday.
