No New Trial for Mason City Man Convicted in Son's Death
A judge has denied a request for a new trial for a Mason City man convicted in connection with the death of his son. A Cerro Gordo County jury convicted 30 year-old Kenneth Adams last month of child endangerment resulting in death. The charges stemmed from the October 2012 death of Adams' 18-month-old son. Prosecutors say Adams put the boy face down in a pillow, cutting off his breathing. Sentencing for Adams is set for Nov. 8 in Cerro Gordo County District Court in Mason City.
