SAC CITY, Iowa (AP) - A May trial has been scheduled for a 26-year-old man facing several charges linked to a standoff with officers in northwest Iowa.

The Sioux City Journal says (https://bit.ly/P5qf6N ) Jonathan Willroth pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Sac County District Court in Sac City. He’s charged with sexual abuse, going armed with intent, domestic abuse assault, assault while participating in a felony, assault with intent to commit sex abuse and two counts of neglect of a dependent person.

Court records say Willroth was arrested at a house in Early after a March 11 incident in which he sexually assaulted his ex-wife and threatened to shoot her while their children were present. Officers surrounded the house and eventually talked Willroth into coming outside.

Willroth’s trial is scheduled to begin on May 13.
