New trial expected for accused cab driver killer

Posted:
STORY COUNTY (KWWL) -

A new trial date is expected Wednesday for the man accused of killing a Cedar Rapids cab driver.

Johnathan Mitchell is charged with the 1st degree murder of Cathy Stickley.
His trial in Story County last week was declared a mistrial because of a prosecutor's medical condition.  Jury selection was delayed last Wednesday, and it wasn't known when the prosecutor would return to work.

Attorneys will reportedly meet with the judge this Wednesday to schedule Mitchell's new trial.
