Tanner King sentenced to life in prison
Tanner King, the Fort Dodge man convicted of first-degree murder last month in the 2018 shooting of El Dominic and Marion Rhodes, has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Iowa code mandates life in prison without parole for first-degree murder convictions. Prosecutors requested that the two sentences, one for each victim, be served consecutively, which District Court Judge Kurt Stoebe granted Friday morning.
Stoebe declined motions for a new trial and an arrest of judgement from King’s defense attorneys.
