View Comments

HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — Prosecutors in Dakota County plan to charge two people in the death of a University of Minnesota student who went missing last fall.

The body of AnaRae Schunk was found in a ditch south of Minneapolis, days after she was last seen at a Burnsville bar on Sept. 22 with her ex-boyfriend, Shavelle Chavez-Nelson, and another woman.

On that same night, Schunk’s ex-boyfriend allegedly killed a man outside the bar. He’s already been charged in that fatal shooting, but had not been charged in Schunk’s death.

Prosecutors say they plan to charge him and the woman with second-degree intentional murder on Friday.
