Man accused of murder headed to trial

(WEAU) - A man accused of murder is now headed to trial.

The ruling for Scott Youngmark, 45, came Tuesday in Polk County Court. Youngmark is charged with first degree intentional homicide. Polk County deputies say the body of Kari Roberts, 47, was found in an apartment in Milltown in December.

Youngmark was later found at his mother's house. He denied killing Roberts, but investigators say they found evidence and took statements that suggest there were inconsistencies in what Youngmark told them about the case.

His next court appearance is set for February.
