ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A 27-year-old Minneapolis man has been sentenced to 38 years in prison for the Nov. 9, 2010 murder of a 28-year-old man, according to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office.

Nathan Nicholas Durick pled guilty in March to aiding and abetting intentional second-degree murder in the death of Joseph John Sanchez. Another man, 26-year-old Nicholas Theodore Anderson of St. Paul has also been charged with murder in the case and is awaiting trial.

According to the criminal complaints, Durick and Anderson were upset with Sanchez over a previous encounter, so they went to a house on the 1100 block on Payne Avenue. When they arrived, both armed, they saw Sanchez in the ally and fired at him.

Sanchez was found wounded and kneeling in the yard of the house. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    “were upset with Sanchez over a previous encounter” = ‘Cco speak for drug-dealer ripping-off the customers, who didn’t like getting ripped. Lesson, if your going to be in that business best recognize the nature of your clientle, and best not try to be a con. The one thing you have to give the so-called ‘criminal-element’: they do a much better job at the quick and speedy dispensation of justice then our legal system. Now if only they would turn on the lawyers, used car dealers and politicians who break their promises, oh wait….. they would be patriots!

    This article is useless. If WCCO plans to inform people of the news, then they need to provide the full information. Previous encounter? What was the nature of the previous encounter? Or is the previous encounter not politically correct to discuss?

    When that kid was gunned down, he had a felony warrant for domestic assault, prior drug and assault convictions. He ran around the east side just causing trouble. Darwin was right about those knuckleheads… No worries Joe, Ill sip a 40 for you later tonight.
