Matthew Crews faces charges from January 2016 robbery and shooting

A Keokuk man charged with three felonies, included attempted murder in connection with a 2016 armed robbery and shooting in Keokuk, has had his trial delayed three months.

Matthew Crews was due in South Lee County District Court Monday for a pre-trial hearing. He was set to go on trial starting March 26th, but that was delayed to June 25th. His lawyer filed a motion Friday asking for the continuance. Crews is facing charges of Attempted Murder, 1st Degree Robbery, 1st Degree Burglary and two cases of misdemeanor animal abuse. He was arrested in October in the 1200 block of Exchange Street on a warrant by Keokuk police. He’s been charged based on an incident from early January 2016, where one person and two dogs were injured in an early-morning shooting in the 300 block of Belknap Boulevard. A co-defendant, Drake Woods, has already been sentenced to five years' probation after pleading Guilty in December.

Crews is in the Lee County Correctional Center on $1 million cash-only bond, and will be in court June 3rd.
