Another man has been charged with killing a 59-year-old man during a burglary at his home in northwest Iowa.
Authorities say 21-year-old Cody Millard was arrested on Thursday and is being held on $250,000 bail. He and 21-year-old Christopher Fitzpatrick, of Spencer, have been charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Edward Kitto. Kitto was found beaten and unresponsive in the backyard of his Spencer home on Aug. 27. He died at a hospital on Sept. 8.
Fitzpatrick has pleaded not guilty to the murder and two other charges. Millard's attorney, Jack Bjornstad, declined to comment on Friday.
