Minn. Man Gets 40 Years For ’07 Stabbing Death

VIRGINIA, Minn. (AP) — A Two Harbors man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to stabbing a 20-year-old woman to death in the Eveleth business where she worked.

The Duluth News Tribune reports 32-year-old Jesaiah Lee Carlson remained quiet Wednesday when the judge asked him if he had anything to say.

Carlson pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder in the 2007 stabbing death of Megan Ashley Anderson.

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.

    40 years is not enough, since we dont have a death penalty he should have life behind bars, period. He will be 72 maybe younger with time off for good behavior. My mother and father just returned from vacation and they are 87, he deserves no life to live at all, ever for taking this young womans life.
