MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From Danny Heinrich’s sentencing Monday to the President’s final trip overseas, here are the four stories to know for Monday, Nov. 21.
The man who admitted he kidnapped and killed Jacob Wetterling will be sentenced for a different crime Monday morning. Danny Heinrich faces up to 20 years in prison for receiving child pornography. It was all part of the unprecedented plea deal where he revealed how he murdered Jacob Wetterling. Heinrich was charged with having child pornography after investigators searched his home in Annandale last year in connection to a different case than Jacob’s.
POTUS’ Last Overseas Trip
President Barack Obama is back in Washington following his final overseas trip as Commander-in-Chief. On Sunday, he met with world leaders in Lima, Peru and spoke briefly with Russian President Vladimir Putin about conflicts in Ukraine and Syria. President Obama says leaders from around the Pacific will move forward with the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a trade deal opposed by President-elect, Donald Trump.
Thanksgiving Dinner Prices
Your Thanksgiving dinner will be a little cheaper this year. According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the average meal serving 10 people will cost $49.87. That’s a 24cent drop from last year’s average. Some ingredients cost less this year including the turkey, milk and pumpkin pie mix.
Vikings’ Loss Streak Ends
The losing streak has officially ended for the Minnesota Vikings. Last night’s 30-24 win against the Arizona Cardinals was the team’s first since Oct. 9. More than 66,000 people packed U.S. Bank Stadium for the game. For the first time in franchise history, the Vikings had two touchdowns of 100-yards or more. They’ll take on the Lions Thanksgiving Day. You can catch the game right here on WCCO.
