IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Charles Thompson, 19, will stand trial again on charges he killed an Iowa City landlord. Thompson's first trial ended in a mistrial after a portion of a videotaped police interview with Thompson that was supposed to be removed, was played in court.

Thompson stands accused in the murder of John Versypt, who was shot to death on October 8, 2009 in Iowa City.  Versypt's body was found by police in the hallway of an apartment building that he owned.

The new trial is set to start December 5, 2011.
