Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Scott J. Beattie, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Greer, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (17 pages)

            Owo Bol appeals his convictions for attempted murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, and willful injury causing serious injury.  OPINION HOLDS: Because sufficient evidence exists to support the verdicts, the jury verdicts are not inconsistent, there was no abuse of discretion in refusing to sever Bol’s case, statements made by defendants whose cases were severed from Bol’s were not hearsay, there was no abuse of discretion in admitting evidence about complex criminal investigations, and no juror bias was established, we affirm.
