Police in Minnesota have charged two boys, aged 15 and 16, in connection with the death of a 39-year-old Maple Grove man on June 11. The Hennepin County Attorney's Office has filed a motion to have the boys certified as adults. The 16-year-old has been charged with two counts of murder in the second degree. Charges against the 15-year-old will only be released if a judge certifies him as an adult. The pair also face burglary, auto theft, and eluding charges in connection with a subsequent incident.
A 28-year-old Minnesota man has been charged with two counts of murder in the second degree in connection with the death of his brother. The Fergus Falls resident faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted. Prosecutors say that they plan to seek an aggravated sentence in the case because the victim was treated with particular cruelty. The man is now being held without bond at the Northwest Regional Corrections Center. Initial police reports do not provide any indication of why he may have killed his 19-year-old brother.
