ONAWA, Iowa (AP) - A northwest Iowa man has pleaded not guilty in the death of his grandmother.

The Sioux City Journal reports 21-year-old Eliot Stowe pleaded not guilty Monday in Monona County District Court. He is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 66-year-old Cheryl Stowe, whose body was found June 27 wrapped in a rug in an area near her home in the tiny community of Castana.

Authorities found Stowe’s body after being contacted by co-workers, who were concerned she hadn’t shown up for work. An autopsy found she died due to “complex homicidal violence.”

Eliot Stowe, also of Castana, was already in custody on an unrelated case when he was arrested Nov. 20 on the murder charge.
