A Davenport man was sentenced to 50 years in prison on a second-degree murder charge in connection with his mother’s death.

McKinsley Steven Watson, 38, was originally charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of his mother, Victoria Watson, 59, on May 21, 2020. Watson accepted a plea agreement in October and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Under Iowa law, second-degree murder is a Class B felony that carries a mandatory sentence of 50 years in prison, 70% of which, or 35 years, must be served before parole can be granted. McKinsley Watson will also be required to pay $150,000 in victim restitution. 

Davenport police were sent the 600 block of 63rd Street at 4:46 a.m. to investigate a call about an unresponsive female. Paramedics with the Davenport Fire Department also responded to the scene and pronounced the woman dead.

According to the affidavit filed by Davenport Police Cpl. Greg Lalla, McKinsley Watson assaulted his mother, Victoria Watson, causing her death.
