Criminal Charges Being Considered For Attack On Minnesota House Candidate

Criminal charges could potentially be filed as a result of an attack on a Minnesota House of Representatives candidate.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office says the case of reported assault on Shane Mekeland has been forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office.

Under Minnesota law, the assault as described by Mekeland would qualify as misdemeanor assault. It could potentially qualify as a felony if the injuries Mekeland sustained caused "substantial bodily harm." Authorities would have to obtain his medical records for a felony to be charged.

On Friday, October 12, Mekeland was discussing politics with a man. According to Mekeland, the conversation was smooth until the man took offense to something he said and punched him in the face. Mekeland suffered minor injuries but did not go to the hospital. The suspect was identified but not arrested.

An investigation was launched by authorities as they interviewed Mekeland, the suspect, and identifiable witnesses, while compiling relevant evidence. 

The Benton County Attorney's Office will review the investigation and make a decision.

St. Cloud Man Who Turned Himself Into Police Indicted On Murder Charges

A St. Cloud man who turned himself in to police after killing a woman because God told him to has been indicted on murder charges.

The Stearns County Attorney's Office says 38-year-old Daniel Walter Kenning was indicted on charges of first-degree premeditated murder and second-degree intentional murder on Wednesday.

Kenning had previously been charged with second-degree intentional murder . He remains in police custody with an unconditional bail of $2,000,000 and a conditional bail of $1,000,000.

On October 17, just a week before the indictment, Kenning was ordered to submit to a psychological evaluation, which would suspend his charges. His first court appearance on his charges would come after he's deemed fit to stand trial.

Kenning turned himself in to the St. Cloud Police Department on September 29 after telling them that he had murdered a woman at his house. During the following investigation, he told authorities he had tied and handcuffed 45-year-old Jennifer Lee Moy to a table before strangling her. He claimed God told him that he "needed to kill someone and that he would be able to resurrect them."

Future court dates, if they're ever set, would be available on the Stearns County Attorney's Office Criminal Case Search website. If Kenning is convicted for his first-degree murder charge, he would serve a life sentence.
