Eighteen-year-old Jacob Seelinger was sentenced Monday in Winneshiek county district court. He was found guilty of second-degree murder by a Winneshiek County jury in July.
Authorities say Seelinger and 19-year-old Dalton Adam of Decorah beat David Hansen to death. Adam’s trial is scheduled to begin October 28th in Chickasaw County district court. A Winneshiek County district court judge approved a change of venue request for the trial Monday.
