SIOUX CITY, IA (10/11 Now) – A judge has granted another trial delay for a Nebraska resident accused of stabbing to death a woman in northwest Iowa.
The trial of 21-year-old Melissa Camargo-Flores was scheduled to begin next week but attorneys sought a delay because of the case’s extensive pretrial process. Woodbury County District Court records say the judge this week set a status conference for March 29th when a new trial date likely will be ordered.
This will be the fourth different scheduled trial date for Camargo-Flores.
She has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the Sioux City slaying of 24-year-old Kenia Alvarez-Flores last April. Court documents say Camargo-Flores admitted stabbing Alvarez-Flores. Camargo-Flores told investigators she’d been involved in a relationship with the victim’s boyfriend.
