HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A grand jury in Dakota County has indicted two people for first-degree murder in the death of a University of Minnesota student who was stabbed to death in a Rosemount town house.

Shavelle Oscar Chavez-Nelson, 32, and Ashley Marie Conrade, 24, were also indicted for second-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Anarae Schunk. Chavez-Nelson was Schunk’s ex-boyfriend, and Conrade was his girlfriend.

Earlier criminal complaints said Schunk was stabbed 22 times with a kitchen knife in September 2013, then dumped by a rural road.

Conrade was accused of helping Chavez-Nelson dispose of Schunk’s body. He is in state prison in Stillwater on a conviction for an unrelated crime. Conrade is held in the Dakota County jail.
