Husband charged with murder
in wife’s stabbing in St. Paul
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul man is charged with fatally stabbing his wife, who had a protection order against him.
Fifty-nine-year-old Dah Eh Ray was charged Monday with second-degree murder in the death of his 58-year-old wife, Dah Dah Ray.
St. Paul police and firefighters were called a domestic disturbance and a possible house fire Saturday morning. An officer saw Dah Eh Ray, apparently intoxicated, walk out of the house with blood on his face, hands, shirt and glasses.
According to the complaint, Dah Dah Ray’s body was found on a bed, with a knife blade nearby. On her chest was a sheet of paper with “rest in peace” written in the Karen language.
Minnesota teen sentenced in football teammate beating
FAIRMONT, Minn. (AP) — A southern Minnesota teenager will serve jail time for taking part in an assault that left a high school football teammate unconscious last fall.
Dalton Nagel, 19, of Blue Earth was sentenced Monday to 15 days in jail, with credit for four days he already served. That was the maximum amount suggested by prosecutors after Nagel agreed to a plea deal in June.
“You need to sit in jail to think about what you did,” Judge Michael Trushenski told Nagel after announcing the sentence.
Nagel earlier pleaded guilty to a felony charge of aiding and abetting third-degree assault in the attack on the 16-year-old teammate at a house party in October. Nagel also pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a gross misdemeanor that prosecutors later added.
Nagel apologized during Monday’s hearing.
