OTTAWA, Illinois – A Mason City man has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Illinois.
Mason Shannon, 43, was accused of choking Michael Castelli to death in La Salle County in July 2017. He was arrested in Cerro Gordo County and extradited to Illinois, where he originally faced a murder charge.
