WAUKON, Iowa – Killing his step-father is sending a northeast Iowa man to prison for at least 35 years.

John Michael Quanrude, 32 of Waukon, was found guilty of 2nd degree murder after a three-day trial in September. Authorities say Quanrude shot his step-father, Dean Elliot Russell, in April in a Waukon mobile home the two shared.

Quanrude was sentenced Tuesday to a minimum of 35 and a maximum of 50 years in prison, with credit for time already served, and must pay $150,000 of restitution to the estate of Dean Russell. Quanrude must also avoid contact with Russell’s family for five years.
