Accused Killer to Return to Minnesota to Face Charges
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- A Cold Spring woman charged with killing her ex-husband in Sauk Rapids has agreed to be transferred from a South Dakota jail back to Minnesota to face a murder charge.
Benton County Attorney Robert Raupp says 38-year-old Angelina Omara should be in their county jail by the end of the week. He says she waived extradition at a hearing in South Dakota today.
Omara will be booked into the Benton County jail and a hearing will be set to determine bail.
She is accused of shooting James Omara once in the head with a small caliber handgun. He was found dead of a gunshot wound inside his Sauk Rapids apartment November 1st.
Omara is also being investigated in the shooting death of her boyfriend Michael Pies whose body was found in an Ashland, Wisconsin hotel room a day later. No charges have been filed in that case yet, however.
