A 23-year-old Mankato man accused of savagely beating an Owatonna man and leaving him for dead last July will serve at least 10 years in prison for the crime. Dustin Lee Murilla was sentenced to 183 months in prison for 2nd-degree attempted murder as part of a plea deal. He could serve 61 months of that sentence on supervised release, with good behavior. He had been facing multiple charges for the incident, which happened after he and the 25-year-old victim had been smoking methamphetamine together. Murilla is already on probation for previous convictions as well, including shooting at a man in New Ulm’s German Park in 2009, threatening a witness and assaulting a man in Mankato last April.
