MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Almost a year after he was charged, a judge found 40-year-old Timothy McVay guilty of first degree murder in the death of his former girlfriend, Carrie Olsen, Friday afternoon.
Olsen’s body was found in Ravenna Township in Minnesota nearly four months after she was first reported missing from the Quad Cities area in December, 2013.
In addition to first-degree murder, Judge F. Michael Meersman on Friday found the 40-year-old McVay guilty of concealment of a homicidal death. Prosecutors argued McVay killed Olson in his home between Dec. 28 and 29, 2013 and dumped her body near Hastings, Minnesota. Her remains were found four months later.
Authorities from the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, the Rock Island Police Department in Illinois and the Davenport Police Department in Iowa contributed to the investigation.
