DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A judge has sentenced a Dubuque man to life in prison for a fatal shooting at an eastern Iowa mobile home park.

The Telegraph Herald reports Judge Thomas Bitter issued the mandatory sentence Monday for 21-year-old Tacari T. Minifee. He was convicted in August of first-degree murder and first-degree robbery in the death of 21-year-old Collin Brown.

After the hearing, Brown’s father, Charles Brown, told Minifee he forgave him. Brown says everyone makes mistakes, and he added that he hopes Minifee “can find Christ.”
