DULUTH, Minn. - A jury has found a 33-year-old man guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter for a fatal fight outside a Proctor bar.
Paul Welle showed no emotion as the judge read the verdicts Wednesday.
The Duluth News Tribune reports the jury deliberated over three hours.
Prosecutors say Welle punched Dale Anderson outside the Powerhouse Bar in Proctor last November. The 60-year-old Anderson fell backward and hit his head on concrete. He died three days later from a brain hemorrhage.
Prosecutor Rebekka Stumme argued that Anderson was only trying to protect a woman he had been told was being harassed by Welle.
Welle told investigators that he punched Anderson once and was acting in self-defense after Anderson first stepped on his foot and punched him.
Sentencing is set for Nov. 15.
