It started when Carpenter called police after she and her 53-year-old husband, Michael Scott Carpenter, had a domestic dispute. When officers arrived at the home On Utica Circle, they found the man unconscious on the floor with injuries on his upper body.

Paramedics took him to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he later died. An autopsy from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner found he died from blunt force injuries to his head.
