MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A St. Paul man pleaded guilty Friday to killing and then dismembering his wife.

Steven Johnson, 35, killed 32-year-old Manya Johnson after she said she was leaving him and taking their 18-month-old son.

Johnson was drinking on Jan. 6, 2013, when he shot Manya in the head with a handgun.

He then cut up her body, put it in plastic containers and took them to a friend’s garage in White Bear Lake.
