Iowa teen awaits new sentencing

Edgar Concepcion awaits re-sentencing

CHARLES CITY, Iowa - A north Iowa murder that happened years ago is now back in the court system.

Officials dealing with the Edgar Concepcion’s re-sentencing met today over the phone to discuss details on how to move forward.

It has been four years since a jury convicted Concepcion of murdering his cousin, a Charles City toddler.  Recently Concepcion’s appeal of the conviction was denied but his sentence was chosen for further review.

This comes on the heels of the Supreme Court ruling that sentencing a minor to serve a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole, was often cruel and unusual punishment.  Concepcion was a teen when he was convicted.
