The victim of a stabbing last week in Mason City has died and the man accused of stabbing him will be charged with murder.
Police say 23-year-old Wraymond Todd died Sunday afternoon at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa in Mason City where he had been taken for treatment after last week’s assault. Twenty-year-old Braedon Bowers is accused of stabbing Todd during an incident last Tuesday afternoon.
Bowers was arrested in Britt on Wednesday afternoon after he was spotted in a vehicle. Bowers had originally been charged with attempted murder, but police say that charge will be upgraded to first-degree murder.
Bowers continues to be held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail.
