OTTUMWA — A trial date has been set for next year in the stabbing murder of an Ottumwa man on Thanksgiving weekend last year.

Brandon Joseph Christopher Seim, 19, was charged with first-degree murder hours after officers found Andy Madren, 34, suffering from multiple stab wounds in the 1100 block of East Division Street on Nov. 27, 2011.

Madren was later pronounced dead at Ottumwa Regional Health Center.

On Monday, the court scheduled a jury trial for 9:30 a.m. May 21, 2013.
