Sentencing is this afternoon (2 P.M.) for a woman from southern Minnesota convicted in the death of her Iowa boyfriend. 34-year-old Elvin Berg of Spirit Lake, Iowa, and 39-year-old Suzanne McNulty of Jackson were in a home in rural Jackson County in November of last year, when a shotgun being held by NcNulty went off. The shot hit Berg in the throat and he died rapidly from the loss of blood. McNulty later pleaded guilty to 2nd degree unintentional murder and will be sentenced today to 15 years in prison. The sentence is longer than recommended by state guidelines because McNulty didn’t seek help for Berg, whose body wasn’t discovered until the homeowner returned hours after the shooting.
