A Knoxville man convicted in a civil trial for the death of his mother will have his appeal heard by the Iowa Supreme Court. You’ll remember Jason Carter was accused of killing Shirley Carter in Marion County in 2015. Jason’s father filed a wrongful death lawsuit against his son and Jason was found civilly liable for her death. Jason was also ordered to pay $10 million to his mother’s estate. But in 2019, a jury found Jason Carter not guilty of murdering Shirley Carter. Jason Carter has tried several times to get his civil conviction vacated. He has also filed numerous lawsuits against investigators, as well as the State of Iowa, saying his rights were violated. Oral arguments before the Iowa Supreme Court will be heard January 21.
