Strausser, District Associate Judge. Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P. OPINION HOLDS: Because a reasonable juror could have found Terry committed an act that was meant to cause pain or injury and he intended to cause a serious bodily injury, and because we are not convinced there is a reasonable probability the district court would have granted a motion for a new trial, we affirm.

Michael was charged and convicted of first-degree murder. He now appeals. OPINION HOLDS: Because the totality of evidence supports a second-degree murder conviction and the State did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Michael acted with the specific intent to kill, we reverse the first-degree murder conviction and remand for entry of judgment and sentence on second-degree murder. Also, we find that the suppression hearing magistrate had a substantial basis for concluding that probable cause existed to support the search warrant.
Finally, we find Michael cannot show he was prejudiced by counsel allowing a witness to testify by video deposition and that the record is not adequate to address other claims of ineffective assistance of counsel.

Defendant Eric Parmenter appeals from the judgment and sentence imposed following his conviction on two counts of sexual abuse in the third degree in violation of Iowa Code sections Parmenter has not shown the prosecutor committed misconduct by arguing the dates listed in the jury instructions were irrelevant during rebuttal argument.

A police officer mistakenly arrested Ford based on an outstanding warrant for a different individual with the same name.
Ford contends the arrest was invalid so the search incident to arrest revealing the marijuana was unconstitutional and the district court should have suppressed it. OPINION HOLDS: Because the officer did not act reasonably in searching Ford before verifying his identity as the person with the warrant, we reverse the suppression ruling and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. Poulson and Zachary Hindman, Judges. So reversal is not warranted.
May, J. Jhamond McMullen appeals his convictions, sentences, and judgment following a bench trial and verdict finding him guilty of several drug-related offenses.

But we decline to award Kelly appellate attorney fees. Haney, Judge. Rogelio Minjares Simental appeals the denial of his petition to modify the child custody provisions of the decree dissolving his marriage to Maria Socorro Minjares.

She contends the court should have granted her request for a continuance, the State did not prove the statutory grounds, termination would be detrimental due to the parent-child bond, and the court should have given her more time to work toward reunification.
The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the mother a continuance. The State proved the statutory grounds for termination as to each child, and the mother did not show termination would be detrimental. Nelson, District Associate Judge.

Marlon Harris Jr. McCall, Judge. DeGeest, Judge. Heard by Bower, P. The defendants appeal a bench ruling denying their claims and concluding they were not entitled to indemnification.

The case is remanded to the probate court for consideration of damages.

The State of Iowa appeals the order entering judgment for Dorothy Hollinger on her claim of employment discrimination based on disability.

Hutchison, Judge. Slashfrog, LLC appeals and Ethan and Jordan Quick cross-appeal from the rulings of the district court related to the contract terms and resulting breaches. On appeal, Slashfrog argues the court erred in finding it breached the contract and in excluding most of its damages evidence as speculative.

She also alleges the court improperly instructed the jury on aggregation. Thornhill, Judge. Tait Purk appeals his conviction and sentence for second-degree murder following a bench trial. He raises numerous claims, including many ineffective-assistance claims. And we preserve all but one of his ineffective-assistance claims for future postconviction proceedings.

The district court correctly determined Shaw failed to meet his burden to establish a prima facie case of fair cross-section violation. But because the parties did not have the benefit of recent refinements to Iowa law, we remand the matter to the district court to give Shaw an opportunity to develop his arguments that his constitutional right to an impartial jury was violated; if the court finds a violation occurred, it shall grant Shaw a new trial.
Although it refused to find Melinda in contempt, the court did find Keith in contempt for his own failure to comply with the decree. Keith filed an appeal to the joint order.

Relph, Judge. The Gopleruds argue the district court erred in: 1 concluding they violated restrictive covenants because the Association a lacked authority to enforce the covenants and b unreasonably enforced the covenants, 2 ordering injunctive relief, and 3 awarding attorney fees to the Association. The contractual nature of the covenants also justify the imposition of injunctive relief mandating removal of offending structures and barring prohibited use. Finally, we find there was no abuse of discretion in awarding attorney fees and costs to the Association.
Clogg, Judge. On remand, the court should also determine the appropriate amount of appellate attorney fees. Jehu Purnell challenges his conviction of one count of willful injury causing serious injury, arguing there is insufficient evidence to prove identity and specific intent. A father appeals from the private termination of his parental rights, contending the evidence of abandonment is insufficient.
He also maintains his retained counsel provided ineffective assistance. The father has failed to prove counsel was ineffective.

We remand to allow the State an opportunity to establish a factual basis for the guilty plea. Currie and Kurt L. Wilke, Judges.
Nicholas Andrews claims the State breached its plea agreement with him and his attorney was ineffective in not objecting. So we affirm his conviction and preserve the ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claim for possible postconviction-relief proceedings.
Shubatt, Judge. The plaintiffs appeal the order granting summary judgment on their negligence claims in favor of the defendant, a group home for persons with intellectual disabilities. They contend the defendant owed a legal duty to protect third parties from harm posed by a resident who tried to sexually assault a minor.
OPINION HOLDS: Because the relationship between the parties and public policy considerations weigh against finding the defendant had a legal duty to protect third parties from harm posed by one of its residents, we affirm the order granting summary judgment. Rudy Colocho was convicted for third-offense operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The officer took Colocho to the police station, but after he used the restroom, he still refused sobriety testing.
Instead, Colocho started speaking Spanish and requested an attorney. The officer rejected the request. After an interpreter was brought in Colocho still refused sobriety testing. The officer then arrested Colocho and advised him his Iowa Code section The officer estimated Colocho had just a little under an hour to make a phone call before the officer invoked implied consent.
Colocho refused to take the DataMaster test. Colocho now appeals. Also, because Colocho refused the DataMaster test nearly an hour after receiving the advisory, the test refusal was admissible evidence in his stipulated bench trial.

He contends the district court abused its discretion when it sustained a motion in limine.

They contend the district court abused its discretion in denying their motion to continue without holding an evidentiary hearing as required under Iowa Code section Both sides had a chance to comment, but the borrowers bypassed the opportunity.
The court did hold a hearing on the motion. That, along with the extent of their other indebtedness, led the district court to conclude the borrowers had not acted in good faith. On our review, we see no abuse of discretion in that conclusion or the decision to deny the motion to continue.
We dismiss the appeal as to the moot note and affirm as to the other note. Foy, Judge.

The defendants argue the petition is time barred, the plaintiffs have failed to argue they are the real party in interest, and the plaintiffs do not have standing to pursue this action.
OPINION HOLDS: We decline to address the statute of limitations and motion to strike issues and conclude that the plaintiffs have established they are aggrieved parties under the statute and have standing to pursue their claims.
We reverse and remand to the district court for further proceedings. Hanson, Judge. McLellan, Judge. James Bailey Jr. OPINION HOLDS: The sentencing recommendation in the presentence investigation report is not inherently improper for the court to consider, and Bailey failed to preserve error on any claim it was improper based on the facts of his case.
Because the record is insufficient to allow us to resolve his ineffective-assistance-of-counsel claims on direct appeal, we preserve them for postconviction-relief proceedings. Van Marel, District Associate Judge.
