Northwest Iowa — Two expected court appearances didn’t happen as scheduled recently.
Plymouth County Sheriff Craig Van Otterloo says 33-year-old Becky J. Hebert of Akron was arrested and charged with 2nd Degree murder, a Class “B” Felony on Friday, October 6th.
The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office alleges that Hebert shot 40-year-old Jeremy Barger Hebert of rural Akron.
Becky Hebert was scheduled for an initial appearance in Plymouth County District Court this Friday, October 13th, but that has been continued to Monday, October 23rd.
Meanwhile, a Sheldon woman who is charged with 1st Degree Burglary and Assault Causing Bodily Injury was to have faced arraignment on Thursday.
Sheldon police say the charges against 20-year old Kathryn Carroll stem from their investigation into an incident that took place earlier this year at the North Park Apartments in Sheldon, where she is alleged to have attempted to enter an apartment on May 8th, and allegedly shouted at the apartment’s female resident to let her in. Police accuse Carroll of tearing the screen off the entry door, reaching inside, and unlocking the door before allegedly assaulting the female resident. Carroll is charged with 1st Degree Burglary, which is a Class B Felony, as well as Assault with Bodily Injury, a Serious Misdemeanor.
Arraignment in the case has been postponed until Thursday, October 26th.
