Trial for Minnesota teen accused of murder delayed

Posted:

ALGONA (KWWL) -- The trial of a Minnesota teen charged in the slaying of two Iowa convenience store clerks will likely be delayed until sometime this summer.

The attorney for 17-year-old Michael Swanson filed motions this week, waiving Swanson's right to a speedy trial and to extend deadlines for depositions and pre-trial motions.

Swanson is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of first-degree robbery in the November 15th shooting deaths of two clerks in Humboldt and Algona.
