Bellevue Stabbing Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

A Dubuque man charged in a fatal stabbing has pleaded not guilty. 23-year-old Drew Mangler entered a written plea last week in Jackson County District Court. Mangler is charged with 1st Degree Murder in the death of 59-year-old James Remakel. Police found Remakel’s body after being called to a house in Bellevue on Christmas Day 2016. An autopsy showed Remakel had been stabbed 33 times in his upper body, neck, and head. He was believed to be dead for several days before police found him. Court documents say investigators identified Mangler as a suspect following witness accounts to police. Investigators also found a shoe with Remakel’s blood on it during a search of Mangler’s house.
