REGIONAL BRIEFS: 24-year-old gets 10-year term in stabbing
Minn. man fit to stand trial in fatal stabbing
MONTEVIDEO, Minn. - A murder case against a 25-year-old Montevideo man accused in a fatal stabbing is moving forward.
Judge Dwayne Knutsen last week confirmed an earlier order finding Darek Jon Nelson mentally competent to stand trial in the Jan. 13 slaying of his co-worker, Vinessa Lozano, 18, at the Pizza Ranch in Montevideo. A grand jury has indicted Nelson on a charge of first-degree premeditated murder.
