IOWA CITY (AP) — A man charged with the 1995 slaying of an Iowa City woman is expected to enter a guilty plea Friday.
Steven Klein is accused of killing 38-year-old Susan Kersten, whose body was found in her burned-out car near Iowa City.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that Judge Chad Kepros said in an order filed Wednesday that he was informed Klein wanted to enter a plea and be immediately sentenced.
It’s unclear what charge or charges will be pleaded to by Klein. He’d been charged with first-degree murder. His trial had been scheduled to begin March 27.
An autopsy showed Kersten died of blunt force trauma to the head before the car fire.
