Sentencing set for James Kroll in Sioux City murder


A Sioux City man faces sentencing, Thursday, after he pled guilty in an attack that killed one man, and seriously injured a woman.

In January, 23-year-old James Kroll, Junior, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, and attempted murder.  In exchange, the charge of first-degree murder was dropped.

Police say Kroll broke into 504 39th Street Place, back in June, and used a crowbar to beat and kill Jeffrey Moravek, and severely injure Mary Tope, as they slept.

Kroll will be sentenced Thursday at 3:00 p.m.  Sentencing guidelines say Kroll will get a 75-year sentence, but will be eligible for parole after 52-years.
