PACIFIC JUNCTION, Iowa — Severe flooding stranded dozens of dogs at an abandoned property in Pacific Junction, just southwest of Council Bluffs.

Amy Heinz, of AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport, says the water was about five feet deep during the rescue.

Heinz says it took eight hours to rescue 26 dogs by canoe. It got too dark out to rescue the other four.

The dogs in the worst condition were taken to a local vet. The others are being driven to Des Moines.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Jason Carter’s first-degree murder trial was on hold for the day Monday.

The judge agreed to continue the trial after Carter’s attorneys requested time to review new evidence in the case.

Some of the information has to do with the alibi of another man that Carter claims is responsible for his mother’s death.

Court is expected to continue Tuesday.
