Email News Alerts

Jedidiah Troxel appeared Monday in a Thief River Falls courtroom on new charges that could put him in prison for life if he is convicted in the stabbing death of Tanya Kazmierczak.


Her body was found the morning of Aug. 26 near a rural bridge over the Red Lake River about 6 miles southeast of the city.

She never returned home from an all-night party that ended early Aug. 25. Investigators said she last was seen alive talking to Troxel.
