Southwest Iowa authorities say a 71 year old homeowner in Bedford shot and killed escaped convict Rodney Long early Tuesday morning after he broke into his house and held him and his wife against their will for about four hours.

Department of Criminal Investigation Agent Mitch Mortvedt says Jerome Mauderly killed Long with a single shot from his shotgun.

Mauderly's wife called 911 a little after 2 am Tuesday.

There was a manhunt yesterday for Long after he shot and wounded a sheriff's deputy who is still recovering.
