A teen has been charged in the deaths of a cop and his wife for a crash that happened back in June.

The Sherburne County Attorney's Office and the Elk River Police Department say the 17-year-old girl has been charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide and operating a motor vehicle in a grossly negligent manner.

She was distracted by her phone while driving a truck on Twin Lakes Road in Elk River on June 15. She drove into oncoming traffic and crashed into a motorcycle occupied by 51-year-old Steven Nanney and his wife, 51-year-old Marilyn Nanney. Both Steven and Marilyn died from their injuries.

An investigation determined the teen was going 63 miles-per-hour in a 55 mile-per-hour zone. She explained that her phone had vibrated and that she was checking to see if it was a call or a text.

The first court date will be scheduled in the near future.

The ACT is an entrance exam for high school students' college readiness. Students with higher ACT scores tend to get accepted to more universities.

Earning a perfect ACT score is a rare feat. Only 12 percent of seniors in the district have earned a 28 or higher, which is in the 90th percentile. Just 6 percent of seniors have reached the 95th percentile.

Julstrom hasn't decided on a university yet, but is leaning towards the University of Minnesota. He plans on studying computer science with an interest in politics.

Sheriff Criticizes Wetterling Investigation Before Releasing Files

Facebook Twitter

09/21/2018 - 11:30 AM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota sheriff says opportunities were missed early on to catch the man who kidnapped and killed 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling in 1989.

Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson said Thursday that the investigation "went off the rails" decades before the suspect was finally caught.
  
Danny Heinrich confessed to killing Jacob and led investigators to his remains in 2016. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison for child pornography.
  
The sheriff revealed that Heinrich was arrested at a bar in Roscoe, Minnesota, in February 1990, a few months after Jacob was kidnapped. But Gudmundson said inexperienced FBI profilers concluded after an interrogation that Heinrich did not abduct Jacob.
  
Former FBI agent Al Garber called the analysis unfair.
  
The sheriff spoke before releasing investigative documents that Jacob's parents had fought to keep private.
