A 19-year-old from Prairie du Chien is ordered to spend 15 years in an Iowa prison, following the beating death of a Decorah, Iowa, area man. 

Dalton Adam was sentenced Tuesday morning to the maximum punishment on two charges. 

A judge in Winneshiek County, Iowa, sentenced Adam to 10 years for manslaughter in the death of David Hansen, and five years for assaulting a second person at a county fairground. 

Adam apologized in court for causing Hansen’s death during a fight.

Seelinger is now serving a 50-year prison term.
