Little Falls Man’s Murder Trial Scheduled to Start Monday
LITTLE FALLS -- A Little Falls man accused of killing his wife last February is scheduled to stand trial this week.
Thirty-one-year-old Jonathan Greyblood is charged with two counts of 2nd-degree murder in the death of his wife on February 6th. His jury trial is scheduled to begin with witness selection Monday morning.
Morrison County court records allege Greyblood admitted to investigators that he strangled 37-year-old Jeanine Greyblood to death and dumped her body underneath a bridge.
According to the criminal complaint, Jonathan Greyblood called the police in the early morning hours to report his wife was missing. He said the two had argued after leaving a friend's house and that she exited the car.
Greyblood told police at the time that his wife told him to drive home and get her coat as she was going to walk to a friend's house. The husband said he did and when he returned she couldn't be found.
The next day as searchers continued looking for Jeanine Greyblood, her husband was brought into the police station to provide a second statement.
Records show he admitted that the two had been arguing. He said his wife was yelling at him and hitting him. He claimed they were in their vehicle in the driveway when he put his hands around her throat to defend himself and squeezed until she went limp.
Greyblood allegedly claimed he started doing CPR but he was unsuccessful and she died.
The complaint says he told investigators he panicked and then drove her to the Swan River Bridge on Great River Road south of Little Falls and dumped her body.
Police then drove to the location and found Jeanine Greyblood's body on the ice underneath the bridge.
The jury trial is scheduled to last two weeks.
