St. Paul Man Pleads Guilty to Stalking Charges
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A St. Paul man accused of compiling a “hit list” of people to kill has pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated stalking.
Michael John Mangan pleaded guilty Friday to stalking charges related to his ex-wife, ex-girlfriend and a pastor.
He could face about three years in prison when he’s sentenced July 3.
Mangan’s sister and brother-in-law told police last fall that the 43-year-old Mangan had assembled a list of people he planned to kill. Prosecutors say Mangan told the brother-in-law he planned to kill the individuals and then kill police who tried to stop him.
The criminal complaint says he was motivated by a bitter divorce. Online court records didn’t list a defense attorney for Mangan.
