Jury: Robinson Guilty Of Being Party To Superior Killing

Garth Velin, 20, Was Shot To Death In Robbery Attempt

One of the co-defendants in the Superior murder of 20-year-old Garth Velin was convicted by a jury late Thursday night of his part in the crime.

The jury found Kane Robinson, 20, of Duluth, guilty of “felony murder-party to a crime,” according to Erica Ellenwood, a Douglas County assistant county attorney for District Attorney Dan Blank.

Robinson’s sentencing is set for Sept. 11.

Meanwhile, Chance Andrews, 17, pleaded guilty earlier this month to felony murder.

Andrews admitted in court to shooting Velin on Sept. 20, 2014 during what investigators call a failed robbery attempt.

Andrews is waiting to be sentenced Sept. 17.

The following co-defendants are still awaiting trial each on charges of “felony murder-party to a crime:” Teah Philips, 17, of Superior; Dallas Robinson, 18, of Duluth; and Kyham Dunn, 20, of Duluth.
