Iron Range Man Sentenced for Death of 2-Year-Old

A Hibbing man will be spending most of the next 10 years of his life behind bars.

That’s the sentence 27–year–old Russell Johnson will serve for first degree manslaughter.

He pleaded guilty to the crime for killing his ex–girlfriend’s 2–year–old daughter in 2012.

He admitted the child was cranky and he pushed her into a wall where she hit her head.

She later died at a Duluth hospital.

He’s credited with serving 318 days of his sentence.
