ROGERS, Minn. (WCCO) – A 32-year-old Rogers woman has been charged with two felonies after her 32-year-old boyfriend died of a drug overdose back in February, according to authorities.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office charged Raina Lee Nelson with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in connection with the Feb. 26 incident.
