MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A New Hope man accused of killing his girlfriend is scheduled to appear in court on July 7.
Fifty-year-old Douglas Carl Manney was charged last week with second-degree murder.
Manney is accused in the death of 40-year-old Kristin Sandeen. She was found dead in the living room of her New Hope apartment on June 5. The complaint says police and paramedics found her after Sandeen’s sister got a call from Manney telling her she should call 911 because her sister was unconscious and he was leaving the apartment.
An autopsy found Sandeen suffered internal injuries to her neck consistent with strangulation.
Manney remains in the Hennepin County Jail. His bail is set at $750,000 with no conditions or $500,000 with conditions. Manney’s public defender was out of the office Thursday.
