Hearing delayed in Osage murder case

Posted:
OSAGE (KWWL) -

A hearing to determine whether or not a 13-year-old Osage boy should be classified as a youthful offender was delayed.

Noah Riley Crooks, 13, is accused of killing and trying to sexually assault his mother, 37-year-old Gretchen, on March 24 in the family's rural Osage home.

The hearing, which was scheduled for Friday in Mitchell County, has not been rescheduled.  The defense attorney asked for the delay.

When a date is determined, the hearing will be closed to the public.

If Crooks is classified as a youthful offender, he would be freed at the age of 18.  If not, he would stay in the custody of the judicial system past his 18th birthday.

The judge has already ruled that some parts of the juvenile court file would not be made public.

Noah Crooks is charged with first-degree murder and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse.

He is being held at the North Iowa Juvenile Detention Center in Waterloo.
