COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A Feb. 18 trial start has been scheduled for a woman charged with the shooting deaths of two men and the attempted murders of two law officers in western Iowa. Pottawattamie County court records say April Montello-Roberts, of Shenandoah, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, attempted murder of an officer, burglary and robbery. Prosecutors say Montello-Roberts helped her boyfriend, Troy Petersen in the Aug. 4 killing of Jerrot Clark and the Aug. 7 slaying of Steven Carlson. An officer fatally shot Petersen after the pair's pickup crashed during a chase.
