Woman Pleads Guilty in Dragging Death of Boyfriend
DETROIT LAKES (AP) - A northern Minnesota woman accused of killing her boyfriend by dragging him with an SUV has pleaded guilty to charges.
Jessica Kilde will be sentenced for second-degree intentional murder in Becker County March 16. Prosecutors say the 33-year-old Ogema woman tied Richard Baity to the vehicle using a strap around his neck last August and dragged him down the driveway and onto the road. His body was found about 50 yards from his driveway in Maple Grove Township.
A criminal complaint says Kilde told authorities she and Baity had a disagreement that night, but that it was nothing serious. Authorities say the two had been drinking and smoking methamphetamine earlier in the day.
