Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Paul Scott, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (7 pages)

            Omar Montalvo Nunez appeals his conviction for willful injury causing serious injury.  OPINION HOLDS:  We find Nunez has not preserved error on his claim concerning the use of a key witness to translate during an interview with the victim.  We conclude there is substantial evidence in the record to support Nunez’s conviction for willful injury causing serious injury based on a finding he aided and abetted his brother while the brother was stabbing the victim.  We affirm Nunez’s conviction.
