Teen given 15-year term for role in fatal shooting of St. Paul man interrupting vehicle break-in

The co-defendant who shot Michael Brasel received a 25-year sentence earlier this year

A teenager received a 15-year term Thursday in connection with being an accomplice to murder when a St. Paul man was shot while interrupting the pair breaking into his wife's vehicle this spring.

Ta Mla, 18, of St. Paul was sentenced in Ramsey County District Court after pleading guilty to aiding and abetting second-degree unintentional murder stemming from the killing of 44-year Michael Brasel on May 6 in his family's quiet St. Anthony Park neighborhood.

With credit for time in custody since his arrest, Mla is expected to serve roughly the first 9½ years in prison and the balance on supervised release.
