An Arizona man has been found guilty of killing four people in Minnesota and leaving their bodies in an abandoned SUV in a Wisconsin cornfield.
Antoine Suggs, 39, of Scottsdale, Arizona, was found guilty Friday of four counts of second-degree murder in the September 2021 deaths of Nitosha Flug-Presley of Stillwater, 30; Jasmine C. Sturm, 30; Matthew Pettus, 26; and Loyace Foreman III, 35, all of St. Paul.
Suggs will be sentenced on May 15.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that during the trial, Suggs testified that he shot the four individuals in self-defense because he believed they were going to rob him.
Prosecutors argued his actual motive are unclear but that evidence points to Suggs intention to kill the victims after a night of drinking in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Suggs’ father, Darren McWright, (who also goes by the last name Osborne), plead guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in helping his son hide the victims’ bodies.
