A convicted double murderer punched and tackled his lawyer in the courtroom before he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Revelle Loving left his defense attorney, William Selman, with a black eye and swollen cheek Tuesday.
A half dozen sheriff's deputies wrestled him to the ground. When proceedings resumed, Loving was shackled in hand and leg restraints.
A jury found Loving guilty earlier Tuesday of two counts of premeditated first-degree murder in the shooting of his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, 21-year-old Mosetta Peters, and her boyfriend, 18-year-old Ja'Naurri Allen. The New Brighton couple were killed in January 2007 while they sat in a car outside an apartment complex in Brooklyn Park.
Selman declined comment on the attack afterward, but said he'd never been hit by a client before in around two decades as a defense lawyer.
