A northern Minnesota man convicted of killing an acquaintance and burying the man’s body has been sentenced to 40 years in prison. Cass County Attorney Christopher Strandlie says 29-year-old Dane Riley of Pine River got the maximum sentence under state law Thursday. In 2012, a jury convicted Riley of second-degree intentional murder, a firearms violation and interfering with a dead body.
A northern Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing another man after an argument at a party last year.
