4-plus years in prison for Minneapolis woman who killed man over $60

Minnesota has an interesting definition of manslaughter. Can't figure out how this isn't murder?

Witnesses say Simons called Pixley to the home, where she demanded that he pay her the $60 she felt was owed to her. Simons then pulled a knife and stabbed Pixley in the chest.

Officers determined that Simons "deals heroin out of the residence and gets mad about her money, her dope and people stealing from her," the charges read.

This is how Covid kills as well

One of my daughter's best friend's dad just passed away from injuries he received in a fall from a ladder. It took 3 days to get him the right medical care because of the backlog of Covid cases.

My daughter is pretty broken up about it.
