Posted: May 08 2013 by ppowers

 Deliberations will begin at 9:00 Wednesday morning in Wright County District Court in Clarion in the trial of 14 year old Noah Crooks of rural Osage.  The jury made up of seven women and five men will decide the fate of Crooks who is facing a charge of first degree murder and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse in the death of his mother 37 year old Gretchen Crooks the night of March 24, 2012. Closing arguments were presented by Assistant Iowa Attorney General Denise Timmins  and defense attorney William Kutmus yesterday as they presented separate arguments before the jury on the circumstances into why Noah murdered and then sexually abused his mother. The trial was moved from Osage to Clarion due to excessive pre-trial publicity. District Judge James Drew is hearing the case that began last week.
