Christian Goyne Yarns Seeking a New Trial

A man convicted in the shooting of a woman early last year in the parking lot of GrapeTree Medical Staffing in Milford is seeking a new trial.

Online court documents show the motion for Christian Goyne Yarns was filed by defense attorney Brendan Kelly December 30th. The state, represented by Susan Krisko of the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, has filed a resistance.

A jury in Storm Lake convicted Goyne Yarns of 1st degree murder in the shooting of Shelby Woizeschke, who later died of her injuries. The trial was moved to Buena Vista county due to pre-trial publicity.

Goyne Yarns is scheduled for sentencing this Thursday, January 5th at 11am at the Dickinson County Courthouse. Online court documents don’t say whether or not there have been any changes to that.
