Man pleads not guilty in brother’s death

Police: Scuffle led to to stabbing


A Marshalltown man charged in the stabbing death of his brother has submitted a written plea of not guilty to Iowa District Court for Marshall County.

Jordan Scott Parker, 22, was charged last month by Marshall County prosecutors with second-degree murder, a Class B felony.

He is accused of killing his brother, Isaiah Jacob Parker, 21. It is alleged a scuffle between the two led to the stabbing.

His plea was submitted by public defenders MIchael Jones and Aaron Siebrecht, who were appointed to represent the defendant by District Court Judge Kim Riley.

At approximately 12:55 a.m. April 26, officers of the Marshalltown Police Department along with the Marshalltown Fire Department and paramedics from UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown responded to

7 1/2 S. 9th St. on the report of a stabbing.

Isaiah Parker was subsequently transported to the Marshalltown hospital by ambulance where he died as a result of his injuries.

Jordan Parker, who was on scene when officers arrived, was transported to the MPD for questioning, and later with the assistance of the Marshall County Attorney’s Office, was charged with the crime.

He is being held at the Marshall County Jail on a $100,000 cash only bond.

A pretrial conference is scheduled July 14 and a jury trial will begin July 25, according to court documents.
