Mpls Man Sentenced For Stabbing, Killing Friend

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 29-year-old man has been sentenced to over 20 years in prison for stabbing and killing his friend on a Minneapolis parking ramp in September, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

Kevin Lamont Mims was given an exact sentence of 246 months for a second-degree murder conviction and 21 months, to be served consecutively, for a second-degree assault conviction.

According to the criminal complaint, Mims picked up three friends on the evening of Sept. 11, 2011, parked at a ramp at 318 2nd Avenue North and went to the Envy Club in downtown Minneapolis. Later, at approximately 3 a.m., the four returned to the car. There, Mims began to argue with the front seat passenger.

The argument turned into a scuffle, and Brian Dean Nelson, who was sitting in the back seat, got out of the car and attempted to pull Mims off his passenger.

It was at this point that Mims pulled out a scissors and stabbed his passenger in the arm and Nelson in the heart.

Nelson was 20-years-old.

      So you’re saying that Kevin is actually a self-loathing black man? Interesting… So that means you hate black people too. hmm…

      • Mike Jaskier

        @ Sonjay,I’m guessing you are black? Why, because you have to assume that some one here hates blacks. But allow me to make an assumption of my own. What’s really wrong is that you’re mad that you’re not as valued by society as some other people. And that is why you want to bring race into every little issue that comes up. Instead you may want to try improving our own place in life instead of blaming Whitey for your problems. Trust me on this one because I am also black.
