March 26, 2019

MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) — A Tipton woman accused of killing her former boyfriend in 1992 is scheduled for another trial.

The first trial of 56-year-old Annette Cahill ended in a mistrial March 12 because of a hung jury. The Des Moines Register reports that her second trial in Muscatine is scheduled to begin Sept. 9.

Cahill was arrested last year in connection with the killing of 22-year-old Corey Lee Wieneke, whose body was found in his West Liberty home.

Cahill has pleaded not guilty to the charge of first-degree murder. She has no criminal history and works for a company that helps train police officers. She has said Wieneke was her best friend and denied any involvement in his death.
