CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — A Meskwaki man is headed to prison for murdering his parents.
A federal jury in Cedar Rapids convicted 26-year-old Gordon Lasley Jr. Wednesday.
Lasley used a machete to kill his parents at their home in Tama County in February. Lasley’s attorney tried using an insanity defense but was unable to convince the jury.
A sentencing date hasn’t been set but Lasley faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
