MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - An April trial has been scheduled for a 31-year-old man accused of shooting a woman earlier this month at a motel in Marshalltown.

Online court records say Jean Martinez-Velazquez, of Marshalltown, has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and several other charges. The Marshalltown Times-Republican says (https://bit.ly/1Hr09og ) his trial is set to begin April 7.

Police say officers who responded to the Flamingo Motel on Jan. 4 found the woman suffering from a chest wound. Martinez-Velazquez also was in the room, and he was soon arrested.
