An Akron man has pled not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of his mother. Jonathan Neunaber entered his written plea to the murder charge Wednesday in Plymouth County District Court in Le Mars, five days before his scheduled arraignment hearing.
Neunaber is being held in the Plymouth County jail pending on a $100,000 bond. Plymouth County Attorney Darin Raymond has said Neunaber has previously admitted to causing the death of Esther Neunaber. Both Esther, and her husband, Don, were found dead at their rural Akron home on July 9th.
Neunaber has not been charged in his father’s death, and investigators have not said anything about charges in connection to the father’s death.
