Guilty Verdict in 2015 Des Moines Murder, Attempted Murder Case
DES MOINES, Iowa – A Des Moines man was found guilty Tuesday in connection with a 2015 murder.
Court documents show a Polk County jury found 64-year-old Alf Freddie Clark Sr. guilty of first-degree murder in Tacono Conner’s death. He was also found guilty of attempted murder for the shooting of Amy Stolki and possession of a weapon by a felon.
Prosecutors say Clark shot Conner and Stolki in the hallway outside of Conner’s apartment at 5201 South Union on December 27th, 2015.
Clark disappeared just a few hours after the shooting and he wasn’t taken into custody until June of 2018, when a Federal Fugitive Task Force arrested him on a material witness warrant in Tucson, Arizona.
Clark’s trial began on Oct. 7th and the jury reached a verdict Tuesday.
Sentencing is scheduled for November 12th. The mandatory sentence for first-degree murder in Iowa is life in prison.
