Man Already Imprisoned Charged In 1975 Murder

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man who is already currently in prison now faces a murder charge in connection with a death that has gone unsolved since 1975.

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced the charge against 61-year-old Michael John Husten.

Police say they never had enough evidence to pin the death of 24-year-old Roger Haugen — who was killed in February 1975 — on Husten, but always considered him a suspect.

Haugen was dropped off at Hennepin County Medical Center with a severe head injury. He died the next day. It was determined he had died as a result of a brain stem hemorrhage.

The county attorney said Husten admitted last year to being involved in a fight with Haugen and dropping a stereo receiver on his head. This corroborated with information from the original investigation.

Husten has been charged with second-degree murder in the case. He is currently being held in Stillwater prison for a different crime.

    Just remember this usless piece of s**t is receiving health care benifits from the state you or I could only hope for. It’s time to give prisoners of this state health benifits only equal to medicad benifits or less. People like him have drained society long enough

      • Larry Fitzgerald

        People like you drain the patience of the just. Kevin presents a valid point, you compare him to a career criminal 99 percenter.

  • CPT Awesome
