St.Michael Man Convicted For Fatal Proctor Bar Punch
(Proctor, MN) -- A jury has found a 33-year-old St.Michael man guilty after a fatal fight outside a bar in northeastern Minnesota. The jury deliberated for three hours before convicting Paul Welle for manslaughter and murder.

Sixty-year-old Anderson fell backward, hit his head on concrete and died three days later from a brain hemorrhage. Welle had claimed self defense. His sentencing is set for November 15th.
