Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Prosecutors want to combine two trials for a Waterloo man accused of shooting his fiancee and killing her mother.

33-year-old Kevin Ambrose faces a murder charge in the in the May shooting death of 59-year-old Kay Straw.  He faces attempted murder charges after allegedly shooting and injuring his fiancee Marlene Buss.  The trial is scheduled for next month.

Attorneys want to consolidate that with a separate trial for unlawfully possessing the firearms at the time of the shootings.  

Assistant Black Hawk County Attorney Linda Fangman said during a court hearing Monday that the facts and circumstances in both trials are the same.

A judge will rule on the matter at a later date.
