A Minneapolis man who told police he fatally shot a 43-year-old Inver Grove Heights man last year after he refused to pay for a woman’s erotic massage pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree intentional murder, according to court documents.
Logan David Slack, 25, entered the plea in Dakota County District Court in connection with the Sept. 24 fatal shooting of 43-year-old Michael Chang-Beom Lee at his home. As part of a plea agreement, Slack will be sentenced to 30½ years in prison, which falls at the top of the presumptive sentence. He is scheduled to be sentenced May 3.
Slack told police he shot Lee once in the back after he refused to pay for an erotic massage that Fotini Anest West had just given him, according to charges. Slack said he shot Lee to stop him from calling 911 and so he could get his phone to ensure electronic payment for the massage.
West, 25, of Minneapolis, was also charged with two counts of second-degree murder. Her case is pending in court, with a next hearing scheduled for Feb. 22.
