Formerly Stayed Prison Sentence Executed in Rochester Murder Case
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The only person given the opportunity to avoid prison for their involvement in the murder of a Rochester man in 2018 has been granted his request to serve what had been a stayed 46-month prison term.
22-year-old Darian Klindworth-Woods went before an Olmsted County judge on Friday and requested the execution of the nearly 4-year prison sentence. The Mankato man was placed on probation last year after he entered a guilty plea to aiding an offender for his role in the shooting death of 38-year-old Brandon Arndt at a southeast Rochester mobile home park. Klindworth-Woods was given credit for the 374 days he previously served in jail.
36-year-old Kielah Parsons of Rochester was convicted of the same charge and was sent to prison for 46 months last year. The man convicted of actually shooting and killing Arndt, Malcolm Woods, is serving a life sentence.
