Minn. Jury Convicts Man In Fatal Stabbing

OWATONNA, Minn. (AP) — An Oklahoma man will spend life in prison for killing his former girlfriend by stabbing her more than 100 times in Minnesota.

A jury in Steele County on Tuesday convicted 23-year-old Ryan Stanley Hurd of all five counts against him in the death of 19-year-old Kathryn Rose Anderson. Prosecutors say Anderson was taken from her Eagan apartment in December 2009, stabbed 109 times and left in a highway ditch. Hurd fled the state and was later arrested in his hometown of Tulsa, Okla. Hurd had a no-contact order against him at the time of the murder. Friends say Hurd and Anderson were ending their relationship.

The Owatonna People’s Press reports the convictions include first-degree premeditated murder. Judge Casey Christian sentenced Hurd to a mandatory life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    When ending relationships violence is not needed. Let’s protect these victims from this type of violent aggresiveness. This gut should have had some emotional mental help if he couldn’t control his emotions better than this. why should everyone else suffer the loss of Ms. Anderson. Men get control of your emotions.
