From News Partner US92:
The trial of a Bloomfield man accused of stealing cattle on a number of occasions has been delayed.
Forty-four year old Timothy Ketelsen waived his right to a speedy trial in Knox County District Court Tuesday, as his defense requested that his pre-trial hearing be delayed.
Ketelsen was arrested in June. Prosecutors say Ketelsen is suspected of stealing cattle from different farms around Knox County in a string of incidents dating back to last November. His former boss reported in June that 13 head of cattle had been stolen from his farm near Bloomfield. They were tracked to a livestock market in Yankton, South Dakota.
Ketelsen has pleaded not guilty to five counts of felony theft. He’ll be back in court for a pre-trial hearing September 16th.
