Guilty Verdict in Fort Dodge Murder Case

FORT DODGE, Iowa — A Webster County jury has found a man guilty of first degree murder.

Twenty-eight-year-old Derrick McElroy will be sentenced next month for the shooting death of 19-year-old Brandyn Preston in May of 2011.

Preston was shot in the neck while attending a bonfire in Fort Dodge. He was initially paralyzed from the shoulders down but months after the incident he died from his injuries.

A first degree murder conviction in Iowa carries a mandatory life sentence.
