Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Susan Larson Christensen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J. (11 pages)

            Robert Reynolds appeals his conviction for second-degree murder, alleging that (1) the district court lacked authority to hear the case because the trial information was filed in West Pottawattamie County rather than East Pottawattamie County; (2) the district court violated his due process rights by disallowing an insanity defense; and (3) the district court’s finding of guilt was not supported by sufficient evidence and was contrary to the weight of the evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm.
