Two men have now been convicted in Iowa for causing the death of a Decorah man during a fight. 

Dalton Adam of Prairie du Chien was found guilty of manslaughter, by a jury in Chickasaw County, Iowa which deliberated for several hours on Friday and Monday. 

Adam could be sentenced to at least seven years in prison. 

A second suspect, Jacob Seelinger, is already in prison after also being convicted of second-degree murder in the death. 

The two allegedly kicked and beat 46-year-old David Hansen of Decorah, after he was knocked out and fell to the ground last year. 

Hansen was the boyfriend of Seelinger’s mother.
