DES MOINES, Iowa —A Des Moines man who beat an elderly neighbor to death was sentenced Monday in a Polk County court.

A judge found Ngor Makuey, 20, guilty of first-degree murder. Makuey broke into the home of Rupert and Harriet Anderson and attacked the couple, killing Rupert with a metal spatula.

Makuey’s attorney used the insanity defense during the trial, but witnesses say they saw no signs of mental illness.

Makuey received a sentence of life in prison plus two years sentence for Count 2 as well as ordered to pay a restitution of $150,000. Count 2 is assault with intent to commit serious injury.

Counts 3 and 4 will run concurrently with Count 1. Count 3 was first-degree robbery and Count 4 was first-degree burglary.
