            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mark J. Smith, Judge.  VACATED AND REMANDED FOR FURTHER PROCEEDINGS.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (6 pages)

            Trenton D. Shelton appeals his convictions for willful injury resulting in serious injury and assault while participating in a felony.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the record does not provide sufficient factual basis of the underlying felony of the assault charge to support his guilty plea.  On remand, the court should address potential deficiencies in the plea colloquy.  We vacate and remand for further proceedings.
