A 26-year-old St. Paul man, whose father was stabbed to death when he was a child and who was shot in the head before he reached his teenage years, pleaded guilty to shooting to death a drug client in St. Paul, according to the Pioneer Press.
Lionell Thompson was sentenced to 17 years in prison Friday for shooting Robert Renville in a “drug deal gone sour,? according to the Pioneer Press.
Thompson moved to St. Paul from Chicago “for a change,? he said.
Except for the lawyers, no one showed up in court to support either side.
