Fort Madison Man Charged With Murder

BURLINGTON, IA (AP) -- A Fort Madison man has been formally charged with first-degree murder in the June death of a Burlington man.

Lt. Jeff Klein with the Burlington Police Department says the recent charge for 42-year-old Lenard Polhans came after a 45-day wait period. Court records show he has pleaded not guilty.

Polhans is accused of fatally shooting 35-year-old Marvin Sutton on June 1. Authorities say the men were arguing in Sutton's backyard prior to the shooting.

Klein tells the Fort Madison Daily Democrat that authorities are still investigating a motive. Polhans remains at the Des Moines County Jail in lieu of a $500,000 bond.
