Tibbetts Suspect Waives Right to Speedy Trial, Claiming Rights Violation

DES MOINES, Iowa —

The man accused of killing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts appeared in court Friday.

Cristhian Bahena Rivera is accused of stabbing the 20-year-old to death and dumping her body in a rural Poweshiek County cornfield last summer.

Tibbetts disappeared in July last year when she went out for a run in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa.

The judge confirmed a trial date for November 12 in Woodbury County.

His lawyers also filed a motion to request more time to prepare for an upcoming hearing.

They contend their client's rights were violated during police questioning.
