Dubuque murder suspect gets new trial

A Dubuqe man serving time in an Iowa prison for the murder of his girlfriend 3 years ago is getting a new trial. The Iowa Supreme Court has upheld an Appeals Court ruling that overturned the second-degree murder conviction of Fontae Buelow in the 2017 stabbing death of 21-year-old Samantha Link, ruling the woman’s mental health history, which included prior attempts at suicide, should’ve been reviewed by prosecutors after Buelow’s defense argued Link took her own life. The case now goes back to the district court.
