A judge has ordered a Webster County murder suspect to undergo a mental evaluation before his trial can continue.
Twenty-nine-year-old Fort Dodge resident Mark David Russell is accused of killing 45-year-old Angela McLeod at a residence in January 2020. Russell faces a charge of first-degree murder.
The police report accuses Russell of beating McLeod to death with a golf club. The trial will be suspended until a judge orders that Russell is able to stand trial, then the trial will resume.
