Little Falls Judge Denies New Trial for Heroin Overdose Supplier

Keon Mangun, Morrison County Jail

LITTLE FALLS — A Little Falls judge has denied a new trial for a Minneapolis man who has been convicted of murder after he sold heroin that led to the overdose of a Little Falls woman.

Morrison County charged 30-year-old Keon Mangun with third degree murder after 19-year-old Miranda Gosiak overdosed February 28th, 2012. A jury deliberated for only three hours before finding Mangun guilty.

Mangun asked Judge Conrad Freeberg for a new trial and for a judgement of acquittal. Freeberg denied both motions and set sentencing for December 30th. He is expected to get just over 11-years in prison.

A second defendant, Brandon Bedford, failed to show up for his September jury trial. He was arrested in the Twin Cities in late November. Bedford is being held on $1-million bail. His next hearing is scheduled for January 15th.
