Trial set for man accused of killing ex-girlfriend in Keokuk
KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) — A July trial has been scheduled for a man accused of killing his former girlfriend in the southeast Iowa city of Keokuk.
Lee County District Court records say 25-year-old Adam McCain is charged with first-degree murder. Prosecutors have said McCain stabbed 27-year-old Calove Sackman once on Feb. 5, got into his vehicle and ran her over, and then got back out and stabbed her several more times.
Officers found Sackman lying on a sidewalk. The court records say she identified her attacker as McCain, who lives in Fort Madison.
On Monday he filed a written plea of not guilty. His trial is set to begin July 16.
