Parents of Slain Student: Justice Will Be Served
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The parents of slain University of North Dakota student Dru Sjodin say the man convicted of killing their daughter isn't the only person who received a death sentence.
Alfonso Rodriguez Jr., of Crookston, Minn., sits on death row in Terre Haute, Ind., while his lawyers argue what is believed to be his final appeal. Rodriguez was convicted in 2004 of killing Sjodin, of Pequot Lakes, Minn.
Sjodin's parents, Allan Sjodin and Linda Walker, attended a hearing in Fargo Tuesday over a government motion for the defense to produce notes from mental health experts.
Linda Walker says she thinks about Dru every day and feels like she and Allan "were given the death sentence as well."
Allan Sjodin says "justice will be served" and he and Walker "aren't going anywhere."
