Trial begins for man charged in Marengo murder

DAVENPORT (AP) -- Jury selection is under way in Davenport in the trial of man charged in the beating death of another man in Marengo.

Jacob Hilgendorf, of Belle Plaine, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Curtis Bailey, of Marengo, in July 2009.

Hilgendorf's trial was moved from Iowa County to Scott County on a change of venue. Jury selection began Monday.

Hilgendorf's mother, Denise Frei, of Marengo, is also charged with first-degree murder in Bailey's death. Her trial is pending.

A third defendant, Jessica Dayton, of Belle Plaine, was convicted last April of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
