DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (KFGO) - Charges have been filed in connection with last week's death of an Ogema, Minn. man.
Thirty-three-year-old Jessica Kilde of Ogema has been charged with second degree murder and first-degree manslaughter in the death of Richard Baity. Baity's body was found on a road about 160 feet from his driveway.
Investigators say it appears the body had been dragged to the scene. A portion of a tie-down strap nearby appears to be consistent with marks on baity’s neck. Kilde's vehicle had a strap tied to a door frame that matched the strap located near Baity’s body.
Kilde appeared in court Tuesday. Bond was set at $1 million.
