- Juan Carlos Bueso-Dejesus, 32, pleaded guilty Thursday to an amended gross misdemeanor charge of third-degree riot for his role in a stabbing incident in March 2013 that began as a fight over a soccer match.

As part of a plea agreement, the charge was reduced from felony level and four additional felony charges of second-degree assault will be dismissed. He will be sentenced April 16.

Bueso-Dejesus was one of four men charged in the case. Jonathan Ariel Pineda-Amaya, 22, of Willmar, was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, which was stayed, 244 days in jail, five years of probation and a $50 fine on a felony charge of second-degree riot,

Pineda-Amaya was also ordered to cooperate with agents from the federal Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He was given credit for 244 days already served in custody.

Selvin Eliazar Arevalo-Lopez, 32, has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison, which was stayed, 129 days in jail, five years of probation and a $1,000 fine on a second-degree riot charge.

Darril Adali Guerrero-Amaya, 20, of Willmar, has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison, which was stayed, 90 days in jail, five years of probation and a $500 fine on a second-degree riot charge.

The two men injured in the incident were taken to Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar and treated for stab wounds. One of the men was stabbed in the upper back and the other had multiple stab wounds to his face, arms and chest.

According to the complaints, Willmar police were called around 12:40 a.m. March 22 to a fight at the Caribbean Club, along Business 71 in Willmar. The responding officers kept the group of people from fighting and determined that no one involved wanted to press charges.

The same officers were in the Willow Run Apartment area just after 1 a.m. March 23 when a fight was reported in the parking lot of one of the buildings in the complex in the 400 block of 15th Avenue Southwest in Willmar. They quickly located the four men. Three knives were located with the men.

The officers interviewed witnesses who said the victim who suffered the multiple stab wounds had had an altercation with one of the men over the Honduras-Mexico soccer match. They reported they were taking the man who was stabbed to get stitches when the four men ambushed them with knives as they exited the building. The second victim was stabbed in the back during the “ambush.” A woman told police that Pineda-Amaya had also threatened the second victim, who identified Pineda-Amaya as his assailant.

- Kelli Debra Jean Rueckert, 25, of Canton, pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony charge of theft by swindle for failing to make a down payment on a vehicle for which she signed a purchase agreement.

As part of a plea agreement, another felony theft charge will be dismissed. She will be sentenced on April 15.

The charges were filed after Atwater police received a report on Oct. 17 that Rueckert had recently bought a vehicle from Atwater Ford. She had agreed to pay $600 down on the 1999 Ford Explorer, giving a $300 money order and agreeing to pay another $300 by Oct. 8. The payment hadn’t been received. The purchase price of the vehicle was $4,400.

On Dec. 13, the vehicle was involved in a crash in Fillmore County.
