This week, the Itasca County Attorney’s Office reported Greniger’s 20-year-old brother Joeseph Allen Greniger, from Grand Rapids, was accused of trying to intimidate a potential witness in the case from “snitching” on his sister.
The complaint says Joeseph Greniger sent the witness a Facebook message and called him, saying “You know what’s coming.”
After talking with police, Joeseph Greniger admitted to threatening the witness.
He is now charged with felony first-degree tampering with a witness, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.MORE NEWS: Amid Missionary Hostage Crisis, Minnesotan From Port-Au-Prince Wishes 'Haiti Would Get The Help They Need'
