02/26/2021

WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Elwood, Kansas man has been convicted of killing his girlfriend in Iowa in 2018.

34-year-old Zackery Bassett was found guilty Tuesday of second-degree murder in the September 2018 death of 50-year-old Andrea Solokowski, in Webster City, Iowa.

Bassett was originally charged with first-degree murder in the case.

Prosecutors said Bassett had abused and stalked Solokowski, of Sioux City, for more than a year before her death. An autopsy found injuries consistent with asphyxiation but Solokowski's cause of death was listed as undetermined.

The maximum sentence possible for second-degree murder is 50 years in prison. Bassett is scheduled to be sentenced April 5.
