An interpreter for the man accused of killing Mollie Tibbetts has reportedly been paid more than $12,000 by the State of Iowa. Court documents show that an interpreter for Cristhian Bahena Rivera has worked about 227 hours in Bahena Rivera’s defense. He’s accused of murder in the death of Tibbetts last July. Tibbetts was found dead of multiple stab wounds a month after she disappeared. Bahena Rivera led law enforcement to her body, but claims he blacked out and doesn’t remember what happened. His murder trial begins November 12 in Sioux City.
