First-degree murder trial for Lansing man has been postponed

The first-degree murder trial of Andrew Karvel of Lansing has been postponed from its originally scheduled November 2 date in Allamakee County by joint request of both the defense and prosecution legal teams involved in the case, according to Allamakee County District Court documents. Karvel had waived his right to a speedy trial in late September. Another pre-trial conference is scheduled for November 8.

Karvel is charged in the May 9, 2022 strangulation death of another Lansing man, 83-year-old Daniel William Lundy. Following an investigation into Lundy’s death, Karvel was arrested August 17 of this year and had entered a written plea of not guilty at his arraignment hearing in early September.
