WAUKON, Iowa – A northeast Iowa man accused of killing his step-father is pleading not guilty.

John Michael Quanrude, 32 of Waukon, is charged with 2nd degree murder and his trial is scheduled to begin on June 6 in Allamakee County District Court after Quanrude demanded a speedy trial.

Authorities say Quanrude shot Dean Elliot Russell, 60, on April 16 in a mobile home at the Parkview Trailer Court in Waukon. Russell was taken to the hospital but pronounced dead on arrival.

Quanrude reportedly called 911 and asked for medical help after an accidental shooting. Russell’s body was found lying face down inside a trailer with a gunshot wound to the chest.

In addition to being Quanrude’s step-father, authorities say Russell was also his roommate.
