Attempt murder accomplice sentenced

WALKER - Margaret May Rock, 21, of Minneapolis, was convicted March 31 in Cass County District Court of felony aiding an offender in connection with the Feb. 4, 2007, attempted murder of Leonard Boyd III at a Cass Lake residence.

She had pleaded guilty to the charge Jan. 22. Judge David Harrington gave Rock credit for 36 days already served, ordered her to pay $1,150 restitution and placed her on 10 years probation.

Boyd sustained life-threatening head injuries from a gunshot wound. He was bleeding profusely when officers responded to an emergency call, according to court complaints.

The complaints indicate Boyd and his girlfriend, Rock, argued at the Cass Lake house in a locked bathroom. Rock reportedly called to Joshua John Beaulieu, who also was present in the house, to assist her. When Beaulieu came to the bathroom, the complaints indicate Rock unlocked the door. Beaulieu then entered the bathroom and shot Boyd with a pistol at 3-4-inches range, then left.

Boyd walked to a mattress in the living room, the complaints state, then collapsed. Boyd was transported to a Fargo hospital in critical condition.

Beaulieu, 23, of Cass Lake, was sentenced Oct. 3 for felony attempted second-degree murder with intent, but without premeditation, to 173 months in prison, with credit for 240 days served prior to sentencing.
