Man sentenced to 30 years for woman’s murder in SE Minnesota

WINONA (AP) — A man from southeastern Minnesota will serve 30 years in prison for killing the mother of his two children in 2016.

Twenty-five-year-old Kyle Allers was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty earlier to second-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Tasha Lynn Hanson near Lewiston.

Allers testified last fall that he began choking Hanson during an argument, and they both fell backward, with Hanson hitting her head on a rock. Allers said he believed Hanson was dead and hid her body in a metal container at the farm where he worked.
