FORT DODGE, Iowa — Attorneys of the man charged in the October 2 death of a Fort Dodge pastor have filed to prevent some evidence on subpoena from being used in the case.

Joshua Pendleton is facing a first-degree murder charge in connection with an alleged assault outside a Fort Dodge church.

Attorneys are trying to prevent subpoenas filed after the defendant was indicted. They expressed in court the subpoena could lead to use of a video clip of Pendleton during his initial court appearance. The legal team was concerned this video could violate attorney-client privilege.

Killed in the incident was Pastor Al Henderson, who was well-known in the community as a chaplain to the fire department and a servant to police, highway patrol and emergency medical personnel in times of crisis.

There is no word on when the motions will be ruled on.
