Millard Plea Hearing Scheduled

Spencer, IA (KICD) — A plea hearing date has been set for a Spencer man facing a charge of 1st degree murder.

The trial of Cody Millard that was set for Tuesday, has been continued. The plea hearing for Cody Millard will be at 3-pm November 4th, in Courtroom A, at the Dickinson County Courthouse, in Spirit Lake.

Millard’s charge stems from a robbery incident in August of 2012 that eventually took the life of 59-year-old Edward Kitto. Kitto was found beaten and unresponsive in the backyard of a Spencer home August 27th and died on September 8th at a Sioux Falls Hospital.

Christopher FItzpatrick received a sentence that would keep him in jail for over 21 years in May in connection to this incident.
