Autopsy results may take weeks in Iowa City death

IOWA CITY (AP) -- Police say it could be a few weeks before autopsy results are released on a woman found shot to death at her apartment in Iowa City.

The body of 20-year-old Kylie Perkins was found last Wednesday. Police say she was shot in the chest by a handgun allegedly brought to the apartment by 26-year-old Alajuwon Johnson.

Authorities say Perkins and Johnson were involved with the mishandling of the gun when it fired, hitting Perkins.

Johnson is charged with involuntary manslaughter, carrying weapons and possession of controlled substances. He remains in the Johnson County jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
