Hibbing man sentenced for killing roommate, burning body

VIRGINIA, Minn. (AP) — A Hibbing man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for killing his former roommate and burning the man’s body in an Iron Range mine pit.

Nineteen-year-old Dylan Gilbertson pleaded guilty last month to intentional second-degree murder in the May death of 20-year-old Jaysen Greenwood. St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin says Gilbertson was sentenced Wednesday.

Greenwood’s burned body was found in the Mott Pitt area of Mountain Iron. An autopsy concluded he had been stabbed, beaten and strangled.

Authorities alleged that Gilbertson was mad at Greenwood over some stolen property.
