15-year-old murder case heads to Iowa Supreme Court

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa's high court plans to review a 15-year-old murder case out of north-central Iowa.

Jose Aguilera was found guilty of fatally shooting Jesus Garcia at a party in Rowan in 1996.

The Iowa Supreme Court granted further review of the conviction on May 3.

Aguilera claims the state withheld evidence that could have changed the outcome.

The request was already turned down by a lower court and upheld in the Iowa Court of Appeals.

Now the Iowa Supreme Court will review the case.
