LOGAN (KWWL) - An Iowa teenager was found not guilty by reason of insanity after he says he thought he was killing a goblin when he killed his 5-year-old foster brother.

On Friday, a Harrison County District Court Judge found Cody Metzker-Madsen not guilty by reason of insanity in the beating and drowning death of Dominic Elkins, according to the Des Moines Register.

Metzker-Madsen testified in court Wednesday saying he thought he was killing a goblin when he killed Elkins last August.
