David Keith Joseph Chatman, 38, of Virginia, Minnesota was sentenced yesterday after  pleading guilty in October 2022 to Aiding and Abetting Third-Degree Murder in  connection with the October 19, 2021, overdose death of Brooke Ann Miller.

Chatman contacted his co-defendant, Torisa Sulvoris Wallace, and coordinated the drug sale between Wallace and Miller that ultimately led to Miller’s death. In exchange for  Chatman’s guilty plea, the St. Louis County Attorney’s Office requested the  presumptive 86-month prison sentence.

The Honorable Robert C. Friday sentenced Chatman to 43 months in prison, a  downward durational departure. In September 2022, the Honorable Michelle M.
Anderson sentenced Chatman’s co-defendant, Wallace, to 134 months in prison after Wallace pleaded guilty to Third-Degree Murder in connection with Miller’s overdose death.

Both cases were prosecuted by Assistant County Attorney Chris Florey.
