Accused Cop Killer’s Trial Moved to Dubuque County

A Dubuque County jury will decide the fate of a man charged with murdering two police officers in central Iowa last year.

Scott Michael Greene of Urbandale is accused in the November 2nd ambush-style shooting deaths of Urbandale police officer Justin Martin and Des Moines Police Sergeant Anthony Beminio.

District Court Judge Karen Romano has ruled that extensive media coverage would make it difficult to find an impartial jury in Polk County, so the trial is being moved to Dubuque County.

The trial is scheduled to begin on September 18th.
