Rochester Murder Suspects Due in Court Monday
Rochester, Mn (KROC-AM News) - Two of the three suspects in the murder of a Rochester man are due to be arraigned Monday in Olmsted County Court. 27-year-old Malcolm Woods and 34-year-old Kielah Parsons have been in the Olmsted County Jail since their arrests on Friday.
The Rochester man and woman each face two counts of second-degree murder stemming from the shooting death of 38-year-old Brandon Arndt in the early morning of September 10th. Rochester Police say Arndt was shot in the head after he answered a knock on the door to his mobile home in Bob’s Trailer Park along Marion Road Southeast.
The third suspect in the case, 20-year-old Darien Klindworth-Woods, is currently jailed in Blue Earth County on charges in an unrelated case.
Rochester Police have not disclosed what led to their arrests, but that information and other details are expected to be released on Monday. Investigators recently offered a $5,000 reward in the case and speculated the person or persons responsible for the murder might have targeted Arndt by mistake.
