A Minneapolis man who pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his ex-boyfriend and business partner at an Arden Hills gas station last summer is now charged with armed bank robbery. Lyle “Ty” Hoffman was sentenced earlier this year to more than 25 years in state prison for the Aug. 11 death of 48-year-old Kelly Phillips, an attorney for medical device maker Boston Scientific.
For the first time Wednesday, the man who lost his fiancé in a shooting at a Twin Cities gas station spoke publicly. Nathon Bailey spoke outside of St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Minneapolis just days before he and Kelly Phillips were supposed to be married.
The family of a man gunned down at an Arden Hills gas station are remembering him Saturday as a kind, selfless man. Kelly Phillips, 48, was buried Saturday morning in his hometown of Mason City, Iowa.
The main suspect in the murder of a Minneapolis executive has been formally charged with murder — and he’s still on the run. Lyle “Ty” Hoffman, 44, was charged in a Ramsey County District Court Friday afternoon with second-degree intentional murder.
The Phillips family says they feel heartbroken after their son was gunned down at a gas station. The man police want to talk to in connection to his death still hasn’t been found.
Multiple police agencies surrounded a pair of hangers at a metro airport Tuesday afternoon after receiving information about a suspect in the murder of a Minneapolis executive. Blaine Police say they received a tip at about 12:37 p.m. that 44-year-old Ty Hoffman may be at the Anoka County Airport.
Before Kelly Phillips was part of a mystery, he was part of a love story. He was set to wed his fiancé, Nathon Bailey, in a matter of days. It was a union his father, Iowa resident Jim Phillips, says the family was excited about.
The University of Minnesota is recruiting students for a new master’s program in medical device innovation. The program is under the Technological Leadership Institute, part of the university’s College of Science and Engineering.
A new heart device made by a Minnesota company could help patients reduce their risk for dangerous clots, and get them off blood thinners for good. Millions of Americans across the country suffer from a disorder of the heart’s rhythm called atrial fibrillation, or AF. Up until now, the only way these patients could prevent a possible stroke was through blood thinners. For 69-year-old Ruby Engelhaupt, a quick walk to the bed was all it took to wear her out.
Another potential round of layoffs is looming over one of the Twin Cities’ largest employers. Boston Scientific says it plans to let about 1,500 workers go over the next two years.
Boston Scientific plans to cut as many as 1,000 additional jobs this year as the medical device maker expands a push to reduce operating expenses.
While lawmakers in Washington are working around the clock to avoid going over the fiscal cliff, Minnesota’s medical device manufacturers face a tax hike of their own.
The United States is suing Boston Scientific, alleging its Guidant unit knew some of its heart devices were defective but continued to sell them anyway.
