Morgan Man Charged with Killing Girlfriend with Bow and Arrow
OLIVIA - Unconditional bail has been set at one million dollars for a Morgan man accused of killing his girlfriend with a bow-and-arrow. 29-year-old Dwayne Case was arraigned in Renville County District Court Monday on a charge of Intentional 2nd Degree Murder/Non-premeditated for the June 11th death of 45-year-old Elizabeth Gregg of Morgan.
Unconditional bail was set at 1 million dollars, and conditional bail was set at $500,000.
An omnibus hearing was set for September 18th at 1 p.m. before Judge Randall Slieter.
The criminal complaint says sheriff's deputies were called to a campsite outside of Franklin where Case had attempted suicide. They found Case inside a tent suffering from a single gunshot wound to the head, and he was flown to North Memorial Hospital. While they were caring for Case, they also found the body of Gregg inside the tent. Even though she had a no-contact order in effect against Case, they were still seeing each other. It is believed Case shot Gregg in the left side with a broad-head arrow fired from a compound bow, which was recovered in the tent also. At the campsite was an SUV owned by Case and inside investigators found Gregg's blood and several notes that appear to be suicide notes. Case was interviewed in the hospital and admitted writing the notes but did not remember killing Gregg or shooting himself.
He was released from the hospital on Friday and immediately arrested and brought to the Renville County Jail for Monday morning's arraignment.
