A Minneapolis man serving prison time for the murder of his former boyfriend now faces new charges – for what prosecutors say he did while leading authorities on a monthlong manhunt.
According to the Associated Press, federal armed bank robbery charges have been filed against Lyle "Ty" Hoffman for a holdup that occurred while he was on the run from police last summer.
Prosecutors say a gun-wielding Hoffman demanded $20,000 from a teller at a TCF Bank branch in Blaine on August 31, 2014, the news service reports.
That was eight days after the murder of Kelly Phillips, a Boston Scientific executive who was also Hoffman's ex-lover and former business partner.
Fleeing the scene of the killing, Hoffman remained on the lam for weeks until a tip to authorities led to his arrest in September.
He was eventually sentenced to 25 and a half years for the crime.
The Associated Press says the new bank robbery charge was filed by information, which "usually indicates the defendant will plead guilty."
