The two surviving would-be burglars in this year’s deadly confrontation at a home in rural Madelia sentenced.

19-year-old Kyle Nason of Sleepy Eye was sentenced to 45 days in jail, while 19-year-old Cornelius Ayers Jr. of Mankato was given 15 days. Both had earlier pleaded guilty to the same charge (conspiracy to commit burglary), but Ayers was reportedly given a lesser sentence for taking accountability for his actions and for assisting with the investigation.

The homeowner, David Pettersen, will be sentenced on July 11th for the reckless discharge of a firearm, after he shot at the car of the young men and their accomplice, 19-year-old Nick Embertson, was hit and killed. With the plea on the gun charge, the manslaughter charge initially filed against Pettersen was dropped.
