Two men were charged with two counts of third degree murder in St. Cloud after the fire killed an 85-year-old woman.
A news release from Stearns County Attorney’s office says Justin Edward Pick and Dustin Ross Zablocki were given their charges on Wednesday. The Honorable Fredrick Grunke has determined a 500,000 dollar bail without any condition or 100,000 dollar bail with condition for Pick. Grunke has also set a 500,000 dollar bail without any condition or a 250,000 dollar bail with condition for Zablocki.
St. Cloud Fire Department says Pick and Zablocki caused the fire that happened in November of 2014 in the 1900 block of 1st Street South. As a result, one of the residents of the home was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center where she died two weeks after the incident because of smoke inhalation.
Pick and Zablocki are currently at the Stearns County Jail and will have another hearing on May 15th.

A gunshot-like that sound that caused the Stearns County Law Enforcement Center (LEC) on lock down on Saturday afternoon turned out to be a false alarm.
Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says three county employees and three deputies were inside LEC when they heard a sound like a gunshot.
St. Cloud Police and the Minnesota State Patrol were dispatched to the area to assist the Sheriff Office. Two rounds of searches of both the inside and outside of the building resulted in no discovery of any suspicious person or item. The LEC was out of lock down around 6 p.m.
The incident turned out to be a bicycle tire that blew up with enough force to damage the tire rim. The bike was parked inside a hallway at LEC and belongs to one of the part-time employees.

Two men were arrested Friday near St. John's University after fleeing St. Cloud police.
Police Lieutenant Jeff Oxton says officers noticed a stolen Chevy Trailblazer in the 2500 block of 2nd Street North in St. Cloud. Oxton says officers tried to stop the SUV which was stolen from Duluth, but the driver refused to stop and drove to County Road 74. Police pursued the vehicle which headed westbound on Interstate 94.
The pursuit lasted for 15 miles before a mechanical problem forced the driver to pull over near the St. John’s University exit on I-94. The driver and his passenger fled on foot. The passenger was arrested after a short chase by officers. Oxton says officers set up a perimeter and requested assistance from the Minnesota State Patrol helicopter which located the driver in a wooded area. A St. Cloud Police K9 and a team of officers arrested 24-year-old Joseph Lee Morrow of Walker.
Oxton says Morrow, the driver, had a hypodermic needle at the time he was arrested. Both of the suspects were taken to the Stearns County Jail. Zupan was booked and released from the jail on the charges of fleeing from police on foot. Morrow is facing unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, fleeing from police on foot, driving after suspension, obstructing legal process and possession of hypodermic needle.
Other than the minor injuries that the suspects received, no one else was hurt.

A 19-year-old St. Cloud man was arrested after setting an apartment on fire on the south side of St. Cloud on Wednesday afternoon.
St. Cloud Police officer Lieutenant Jeff Oxton says the Fire Department was called to the 1800 block of 16th Street Southeast in connection with a fire. Oxton says a report from the Fire Department shows a fire in a second floor bedroom of the apartment resulted in $ 5500 damage. No injuries were reported during the fire. All the occupants were allowed to go back to their rooms except the once whose room was fired. That person is staying with a relative until the room is repaired.
The report indicates one of the tenants smelled smoke and was able to put out the fire before the arrival of firefighters. It is believed the fire is arson and Dragon Matthew Wood-Hillman is identified as the suspect. Oxton says officers were able to locate and arrest Hillman on Thursday afternoon at 1725 Kilian Boulevard. He was taken to the Sherburne County Jail and waiting for court on the charges of 1st Degree Arson.
