MASON CITY, IA- A north Iowa man accused of stabbing his father to death is pleading not guilty.
In July, authorities responded to a 911 call from the home of Thomas Barlas. When they arrived they found the male dead and then arrested his son, Thomas Barlas Jr. and charged him with murder.
Barlas entered a plea of not guilty and has demanded a speedy trial. The trial will be in late September.
