News Minute: Here is the latest Iowa news from The Associated Press at 9:40 p.m. CDT


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - One of Iowa's biggest health systems says the state is improperly barring all of its hospitals, clinics and health care providers from participating in a new family planning program because a few within the system perform abortions. The Des Moines Register reports that UnityPoint Health says it should be allowed to offer publicly financed birth-control services to moderate-income Iowa residents. But state administrators say a new state law strictly bans any system that allows any abortion.

ELKADER, Iowa (AP) - Iowa prosecutors have charged two nurses, accusing them of abusing a resident at a northeastern Iowa nursing home. Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports that Nichole Buckley and Heidi Mueller are each charged with dependent adult abuse, wanton neglect of a resident of a health care facility and tampering with records. Prosecutors say the charges are related to the abuse of a patient at Elkader Care Center in March.

WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa (AP) - Three teens have died and one person has been seriously injured in a crash in eastern Iowa. Investigators say 18-year-old Chad Owens, of North English, was driving the truck on a dirt road about nine miles west of Williamsburg when he lost control and overturned into a creek. Killed were Owens and two passengers, 19-year-old Michael Dudley Galyon, of Williamsburg, and 19-year-old Kaitlyn Jolene Cook, of Deep River. A 21-year-old woman was injured in the wreckage discovered Friday afternoon.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A West Des Moines record store owner has been charged with invasion of privacy after police say he hid a camera in the business' bathroom and recorded an underage girl. Police say 48-year-old Robert Kuhn, of Des Moines, was arrested Friday morning. In late August, a girl who had worked for Kuhn at Wayback Records told police that she found a camera hidden on a shelf in the bathroom after Kuhn had asked her to try on dresses because he wanted to post the clothes on social media.
