ST. CLOUD — Stearns County prosecutors are looking to file a first degree murder charge against a St. Cloud man accused of stabbing his mother to death two weeks ago.

The Stearns County Attorney’s Office has filed paperwork to convene a grand jury to consider the indictment. State law requires a grand jury indictment for first degree murder.

Fifty-two-year-old Dean Friese is accused of stabbing 72-year-old Lois Omeara multiple times September 14th at his apartment on 33rd Avenue North.

According to the criminal complaint, Friese pulled the medical alarm in his apartment, knowing his mother would respond. Friese then told investigators he grabbed a large kitchen knife and stabbed her when she entered the apartment.

Friese also acknowledged to police he had thought about killing his mother.

Omeara was pronounced dead at the scene with multiple stab wounds to her chest.

Friese remains jailed on $3-million bail.
