Minn. Man Pleads Guilty To In 2007 Stabbing Death

VIRGINIA, Minn. (AP) — A Two Harbors man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of 20-year-old Megan Ashley Anderson three years ago at midday in an Eveleth business.

The Duluth News Tribune reports 32-year-old Jesaiah Lee Carlson entered the plea in St. Louis County District Court on Monday. He agreed to a 40-year prison sentence.

Carlson had been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of attempted first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Anderson was working alone at a sign store when she was stabbed 29 times. Carlson was selling cutting boards and children’s books in the area at the time.

Carlson’s ambiguous statements and a knife found in his car prompted the charges.

    Did they think 2nd degree would save the DA some man hours.? He should have 1st degree against him, we’ll see this guy again in 15 years. thanks alot Mr. DA

    So with the two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of attempted first-degree criminal sexual conduct that WAS being charged against him, he is only being charged with 2nd degree murder? This means he will have the chance of getting parole with only a 2nd degree sentence right? …I don’t understand why this was even offered to him?

    There’s no justice for the unjust.
