Witness In Munt Case Calls Him "Evil and Selfish"
MANKATO (TEC News) -- Todd Block was enjoying a beautiful Sunday morning walking his dog in Rasmussen Woods.
It was March 28, 2010.
Little did he know life for him would change for ever.
Block was alone in the park when Joel Munt rammed his SUV into the car occupied by his ex-wife and three children.
He was on the path when he heard the crash. Heading back to the parking lot area to investigate he heard what he thought was a woman scream and gunshots.
"Life as I know it changed. Your actions...not IT...turned my life upside down," Block told the court today during his victim's impact statement.
Walking into chaos, Block would have a gun pointed in his face by Munt. He would flee with his dog to a picnic shelter area where he called 9-1-1 and then watched a couple and their three children drive into the chaos. He would watch them face the barrel of Munt's hand gun. He would watch their children and later the couple flee the scene to safety.
"I don't sleep, eat, I wake up in a pool of sweat hearing those children scream," said Block.
"You, Munt, are the definition of evil," said Block.
Thoughout the reading of the verdict and Block's victim impact statement, Munt sat with his head down, writing without emotion or acknolgement.
"It's truly a shame the state of Minnesota dosent' have the dealth penalty," said Block.
