May 7, 2018


Bessemer — An Ironwood man pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and delivery of a controlled substance-morphine charges in Gogebic County Circuit Court Thursday.

Bo Lee Menara, 37, pleaded guilty to the charges in relation to the death of Angela Mylly in September.

Menara caused Mylly’s death by delivering excessive doses of morphine, according to court documents.

The delivery of a controlled substance charge is a 20-year felony, while the manslaughter charge carries a potential maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

The Ironwood Public Safety Department and Beacon ambulance responded to a report of an unresponsive Ironwood resident at 6:24 a.m. Sept. 1. The resident, identified as Mylly, was later pronounced dead.

Menara pleaded guilty to the two charges as part of a plea agreement, in exchange for Gogebic County Prosecutor Nick Jacobs agreeing to concurrent sentences for the two charges and recommending a sentence within the sentencing guidelines.

According to the agreement, Jacobs also agrees not to charge Menara with any other crimes in connection to Mylly’s death.

Menara is scheduled to be sentenced June 12.
