Todd Anthony Gerleman, 56, was shot and killed by Glenn Burton,40, on December 21, in St. Paul. Todd was accompanying his friend, whom Burton was dating, when Burton shot Todd in theface. On the 21st, Burton’s girlfriend, Todd and other friends arrived at her home to help repair property damage committed by Burton. However, when the group arrived, they saw Burton’s car parked outside. The girlfriend and Todd then went to Burton’s mother’s home to request she call her son and ask him to leave the girlfriend’s house. Burton arrived at his mother’s home when his girlfriend was walking to her car, and began physically assaulting her. After noticing Todd in the passenger seat of the car, Burton yelled to his girlfriend, “You ain’t gonna escape me — I own you!,” before pulling out a gun. Burton shot at his girlfriend, who stated she felt the bullet pass by her face, but instead hit Todd in the arm. The girlfriend was able to get into the car and attempted to flee, but Burton shot Todd again. The woman later told police that she had been dating Burton for two weeks and he recently “became very possessive and physically abusive.” Glenn Burton was charged with attempted murder of his girlfriend and intentional second-degree murder in Todd Anthony Gerleman’s death.
