Hearing Monday in Jason Carter’s Bid to Overturn Wrongful Death Verdict
KNOXVILLE, Iowa -- A man who was charged with murder in the death of his mother, after already being found liable in a civil wrongful death trial, will be in court Monday. Jason Carter is trying to overturn that civil court judgement, saying some evidence was withheld from him. Shirley Carter was shot and killed in her Lacona home in 2015. Her husband Bill Carter was convinced that their son Jason was responsible, but criminal investigators did not have enough evidence to make any arrest in the case.
