NORTHWOOD — It’s 25 years in prison for a Northwood man found guilty of attempted murder after an incident last year.
32-year-old Trapp Trotter was accused of stabbing a man from Manly on the night of June 2nd of last year during an incident which happened at the Schoolside Apartments in the 600 block of Seventh Street North in Northwood. The victim suffered multiple stab and slash wounds and was taken to MercyOne North Iowa in Mason City where he was treated and eventually released.
Trotter’s trial was moved to Waverly, where a Bremer County jury found him guilty in April of attempted murder and criminal trespass.
Trotter was sentenced today to 25 years in prison. Due to attempted murder being a forcible felony, Trotter must serve at least 17-and-a-half years prior to being considered for parole.
