Gangbanger pleads guilty to murder, tells court he's not sorry

itemprop

In a moment of unvarnished -- or sociopathic, take your pick -- candor, Marquez Storey, of St. Paul, took the stand at his sentencing, defiantly told the court he had no remorse for what he'd done and said his victim deserved to die.

And he said those things right after the victim's mother had read her own statement to the court.

Emily Gurnon of the Pioneer Press was there:

"I don't feel sorry for nobody in this courtroom, not the least," said the 19-year-old St. Paul man who pleaded guilty to gunning down Dionte Montantes outside the Jimmy Lee Recreation Center in St. Paul on June 19.

"You know, he was a gang-banger just like me," Storey continued, prompting a relative of the victim to unleash an angry burst of obscenities toward him. Deputies swiftly removed the relative from the courtroom. "(Montantes) did just as much as I did out there," Storey said.

Ramsey County District Judge Marybeth Dorn sentenced sentenced Storey to 30 years and seven months in prison.
