DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Attorneys for a Dubuque man accused of fatally shooting his daughter say he was not fit to waive his Miranda rights when he was interviewed by authorities.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1QxQy3f ) that attorneys argued for their motion to suppress statements made by 62-year-old Robert C. Stern.

Stern appeared in Dubuque County District Court on Friday. He is charged with first-degree murder after authorities say he repeatedly shot his 27-year-old daughter, Kimberly L. Stern, on June 9.

Stern’s attorneys argue there is no documentation that he was properly read his Miranda rights, and they say he wasn’t fit to waive those rights because of his physical, mental and emotional condition.
