Police bring in 3 in connection with Iowa slaying

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have taken into custody three men who they believe may have information tied to a Marshalltown slaying.

The Marshalltown Police Department says the three men were taken into custody Thursday on material witness warrants. Two were later dismissed. One man remains in custody on the warrant.

Police say 59-year-old David James Warnell, of Garwin, was found inside a house on Oct. 1. He was fatally shot in the head.

Two people have been charged in the case and remain at the Marshall County Jail. Online court records say 30-year-old Jeremy Gartin is charged with first-degree murder and carrying a concealed weapon. Fifty-five-year-old Max Nelson Jr. is charged with theft, abuse of a corpse and being an accessory. Court records do not list attorneys.
