Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - A Jury has found a 33-year- old man guilty of second degree murder and first degree manslaughter in connection with a deadly assault outside a Proctor bar.

Police arrested Paul Welle after he delivered a fatal blow to 60-year-old Dale Anderson outside the Powerhouse bar last November.

Court records indicate Anderson was trying to protect a woman from Welle.

Anderson died three days after the fight from bleeding and swelling of the brain, according to the St. Louis County Medical Examiner.

Sentencing is scheduled for November 15th.
