      •  Steven E. Lewis, from Chicago, lured Aung Thu Bo, born in Thailand, to a parking lot and then a side street in St. Paul. There, Lewis fatally shot Bo once in the head during a robbery. Bo thought he was meeting Lewis to buy an iPhone advertised on Craigslist.
        “It seems to me that your parents moved up here to give you a better life, is that correct?” Ramsey County District Judge Margaret Marrinan asked Lewis at his sentencing Wednesday.

        Bo helped his parents and sisters, while friends said Lewis came from a broken home where he didn’t know his dad, didn’t communicate with his mother and relied on a grandmother.
        Lewis tried to rectify that in his own life, said his friend Andrian Sangster. He has two daughters, ages 5 and 4.“He was very involved with his kids,” said Sangster, who didn’t downplay his friend’s troubled criminal past. Lewis also has a 10-month-old son he’s never met. The earliest he could possibly meet his son outside prison walls is when the boy is 16
