You can see it on Facebook. You can see it if you show up at the ever-growing memorial outside a Crystal apartment complex. Barway Collins is missed and people are moved to tears.
Nearly four weeks after Barway Collins was last seen alive, his father has been charged with second-degree intentional murder in connection to his death Tuesday afternoon. Crystal police arrested Pierre Collins Monday and believe he’s responsible for the disappearance and death of his 10-year-old son.
A Minneapolis woman pleaded guilty Monday to helping her father dispose of the body of the woman he murdered.
A Cottage Grove man was sentenced to more than six years in prison in Washington County Court Tuesday after a September 2012 bar fight turned deadly. Eric Richard, 22 was charged immediately after the September 2012 incident with second-degree homicide and first-degree manslaughter in the death of Adam McCloud.
A Minneapolis woman’s death has been ruled a homicide by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office. The body of Nerissa Annette Shaw, 46, was found wrapped in a sheet along the 5000 block of Cedar Lake Road in St. Louis Park on Tuesday. Authorities say Shaw died from multiple blunt-force injuries. Police arrested 54-year-old Walter Thompson III, also of Minneapolis, on probable cause of second-degree homicide. Thompson and Shaw had a history of domestic issues, and he was currently on probation for violating an order of protection involving the victim.
