ROCKWELL CITY, Iowa (AP) — The trial of a Pomeroy man accused of killing a North Dakota man is set to begin next week.

The Fort Dodge Messenger says 48-year-old Freddy Crisp is charged with first-degree murder for the Nov. 10 shooting death of 41-year-old Dale Currie Potter, of Devils Lake.

Crisp has pleaded not guilty. His trial is set to begin with jury selection Monday at the Calhoun County Courthouse in Rockwell City.

Authorities say deputies were called to a Pomeroy address early the morning of Nov. 10 on a report of someone having been shot.

Deputies found Potter dead at the scene. Agents with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation arrested Crisp eight days later.

Crisp is currently being held in the Sac County Jail on $1 million bond.
