MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 25-year-old Cloquet woman was sentenced to 23 years in prison Friday in connection with the shooting deaths of a couple from northwestern Minnesota.

Rachel Defoe was convicted of second-degree murder in connection with the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting deaths of Tom Holm and Kim Schmitz in Cromwell. She was given credit for 570 days already served in the Carlton County Jail.

Defoe and David Joshua Annette were arrested March 2 in connection with the murders of the 53-year-old couple. According to court documents, Tom Holm’s pick-up truck was found burning on the night of Jan. 8, 2011, in St. Louis County. In the truck was a shirt with the words “Utmost Supremacy” printed on it.

The next morning, the bodies of Holm and Schmitz were found in their Cromwell home.
