Guilty Verdict in Albany Native’s death

Court ActionMINNEAPOLIS – A Minneapolis man has been found guilty for the murder of a man originally from Albany.

A spokesman for the Hennepin County Attorney’s office says Adam Lee Sterling was convicted today (Thursday) of the First Degree Premeditated Murder of Leo Kohorst.

In October of last year officers were called to Kohorst’s home in south Minneapolis and found Sterling and another man on the porch.  Kohorst was dead inside.  Investigators believe Kohorst was hit about 22 times with a crowbar or the claw end of a hammer.

Sterling was renting a room from Kohorst, and it’s believed an eviction notice was the motive for the murder.

Sentencing for Sterling will be this afternoon, he’s expected to get life in prison.
