Iowa man accused of killing his mother has trial pushed back

An Iowa man accused of killing his mother in 2021 will have to wait until next year for his trial. Robert Blohm Jr., 47, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his mother, Rebecca Blohm, 70.

The trial, which was originally scheduled for June 6, 2022, has been pushed back to January 9, 2023, due to a request from Blohm’s defense attorney for more time to prepare.

According to police, Blohm called 911 on August 4, 2021, and told authorities that he had killed his mother. When police arrived at the home, they found Rebecca Blohm’s body in a bedroom. She had died from multiple stab wounds.

Blohm was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. He has been held in the Linn County Jail since his arrest.

The case has drawn significant attention in Iowa, with many wondering what could have led Blohm to allegedly kill his own mother. However, details of the case remain scarce, as police have not released any information about a possible motive.

Blohm’s defense attorney has not commented publicly on the case.

The delay of the trial means that Blohm will spend at least another several months in jail awaiting his day in court. The case will be closely watched by legal experts and the public alike, as many continue to try to make sense of the tragic killing.
