Jacob Seelinger

Authorities say Adam and Jacob Taylor Seelinger, 18 of Decorah, killed Davin Hansen on July 12, 2018. Adam and Seelinger were accused of beating Hansen to death after Hansen beat his girlfriend.

Seelinger was found guilty on July 17 of 2nd degree murder and was sentenced to 50 years in prison.

Adam’s trial was held in Chickasaw County.
