ST. CLOUD — A St. Cloud man is being held on $3-million bail after he allegedly killed his mother early Saturday morning.

The Stearns County Attorney’s Office has charged 52-year-old Dean Friese with one count of second degree murder in the death of Lois Omeara.

Friese and Omeara lived in the same apartment building along 33rd Avenue North in St. Cloud, but lived in separate units.

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’s next court appearance is scheduled for October 1st.
