Man sentenced for hammer attack

Email

RED WING, Minn. -- Daniel David Yennie walked to the front of a courtroom Friday in Goodhue County District Court just before his attacker, Jonathan Lee Closner, was sentenced to 212 months in prison as his sister Nicole Yennie-Drake read a victim impact statement on his behalf: “I shouldn't have to learn (how to walk and talk) again," the statement read. “I can't hold a conversation. I spend most of my time listening. But my will was not taken from me.”
