17-Year-Old Sentenced To 31 Years In Beating Death

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 17-year-old man has been sentenced to 31 years and eight months in prison for the beating death of a man in Golden Valley, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

Emmanuel Garmodhen Myles was found guilty in court Dec. 27 for the homicide of James Teto Grant. He was charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the beating death of Grant.

Myles and two others were arrested after Grant’s body was found in Theodore Wirth Park on July 18. An investigation revealed the men allegedly beat Grant to death during a gang initiation.

According to the criminal complaint, the men tried to bury Grant’s body but after that was unsuccessful, they stole a car battery, tied it to his leg and attempted to submerge the body in the pond at Wirth Park.

His body was discovered by a kayaker about a week later.

    Wonder if it’s related to the gang initiation or just felt like beating him up during the initiation.

    Could have stopped at the POS. Did you just want to let everyone know that you’re a back woods hick? I would suggest moving South and being with the rest of your redneck inbred cousins.
