Minnesota State Univeristy-Mankato
The wife of a former Minnesota State football player who was critically injured in a beating has given birth to the couple’s second daughter. Molly Kolstad gave birth to the girl on Wednesday at Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato. Hospital spokesman Kevin Burns told KTOE radio that both mother and daughter are doing well.
The college year came to a violent end near one Minnesota campus. Two young people suffered critical injuries within one week in downtown Mankato in May. One left a former Minnesota State University Mankato linebacker in a coma, while another happened when a student tried to jump on the back of a campus bus. Police believe alcohol played a role in both.
A Minnesota State University-Mankato student is in custody following an armed assault at the university’s library.
