University dean stabbed in Iowa
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- A top administrator at the University of Iowa's medical school was stabbed to death early Wednesday at an apartment.
Dr. Richard P. Nelson, a 55-year-old executive dean, was found by police before daybreak and died at a hospital.
A woman was being interviewed about the stabbing, police said.
Nelson lived in Iowa City, where the medical school is located, about 30 miles from the Cedar Rapids apartment.
He came to the university in 1987 as a professor of pediatrics and was nationally known for his work with children with developmental disabilities.
