Trial date set for Cedar Rapids shooting


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A trial date has been set for three men accused in the shooting of Kevin Bell of Cedar Rapids.  Seventeen-year-olds Denem Null and Gabriel Taylor and 20-year-old Johven Lee will face the Linn County District Court on Aug. 23.

The three men are being charged with first-degree murder.  Police say the three broke into Bell's apartment on Jan. 11 to rob it and then shot Bell before leaving the building.

Null and Taylor were arrested about three weeks after the shooting and both will be tried as adults.  Lee was arrested in February in Chicago and brought back to Iowa in March.
