Man convicted of 2015 Des Moines slaying
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 64-year-old man has been convicted of shooting to death a Des Moines resident in 2015.
Polk County District Court records say Alf Clark Sr. was found guilty Wednesday of first-degree murder. Prosecutors say he killed 36-year-old Tacono Conner at a Des Moines apartment complex on Dec. 27, 2015. A woman at the apartment also was shot.
The Des Moines Register reports that Clark lived in the apartment where the shooting took place. He was on supervised release then after serving prison time on a federal drug charge but disappeared shortly after the slaying.
He was found in Tucson, Arizona, on June 8 last year.
Clark is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 12 to life in prison without possibility of parole.
