Judge denies motion in Iowa killing

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -- A judge has denied a motion to suppress statements made to police by a Marion man accused of beating another man to death at a neighbor's house.

Kim Polley is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Daniel Meade, of Hiawatha, on Dec. 14.

Polley asked the court to suppress his statements because he asked for a lawyer after he was arrested on Dec. 15.

Judge Marsha Beckelman on Monday ruled the detectives didn't ask Polley any questions about the murder investigation after he said he wanted an attorney.

Polley's trial is set for June 7 in Linn County District Court.
