Maurice Angelo McClinton Smith CHARGED w/3 felonies including 2nd degree murder & 1st degree burglary in #StPaul's 1st homicide.
Smith gave a rambling statement to police.
Charges say Smith & the victim were Facebook friends & that Smith kicked in the door armed with a knife. ImageImageImage
As we posted yesterday, if it wasn't for Minnesota's lax joke of a criminal justice system, McClinton Smith should have been in prison at the time of the murder.
McClinton Smith has three prior felony convictions including theft, prohibited person in possession of teargas or stun gun, and violation of a no contact order.
