Murdock woman injured in Tuesday morning crash
PENNOCK - A Murdock woman was injured in a rollover accident reported around 8:43 a.m. Tuesday west of Pennock.
Amy I. Regnier, 25, was reportedly traveling east along U.S. Highway 12 when she lost control of her vehicle on an icy patch of roadway, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
Regnier was transported for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries to Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar.
WILLMAR - A burglary was reported at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday at a business in the 3500 block of U.S. Highway 12 East. The caller stated that the door of the business had been forced open sometime overnight.
WILLMAR - Police received report around 4 a.m. Tuesday that a woman was standing outside, screaming for help in the 700 block of Third Street Southeast.
Police arrived on scene and saw what appeared to be blood on the door of the residence.
Police were unable to locate anyone on scene. The caller told police she did not see what happened, but thought people had left in a black car.
Officers reportedly found the vehicle, but did not find the people involved in the reported domestic incident.
• WILLMAR - Carolyn Pelkey, 48, of Belgrade, pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of terroristic threats stemming from a July incident.
An additional two felony counts of second-degree assault will be dismissed upon sentencing April 27, along with misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and damage to property.
Pelkey had originally only faced one count of second-degree assault in this case. The criminal complaint was amended at the end of July, following additional investigation, and the new charges were added.
According to the amended criminal complaint on the charges, the incident occurred at Kandiyohi County Park 7 at Games Lake.
Pelkey was reportedly in a dispute with another woman about a cooler and allegedly held a knife to her throat.
A man and his teenage daughter stepped in to try and help the woman.
Before Pelkey fled the scene, she allegedly waved the knife in front of the man and, still holding the knife in her hand, grabbed his daughter.
• WILLMAR - Keon La Shawn Thomas, 29, of Rochester, was sentenced Monday on a charge of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree.
Thomas was sentenced to 30 days of jail and placed on 15 years of probation with conditions including completing a psychological sexual evaluation and having no contact with the victim or people under the age of 18.
Thomas received a stay of adjudication on the charge, which means a conviction will not appear on his record if he successfully completes probation.
An additional three charges of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree were dismissed Monday, as part of a plea agreement.
According to the criminal complaint on the charges, a 19-year-old woman reported that Thomas sexually assaulted her five times when she was 15 years old.
The woman reportedly said Thomas was a family friend and worked as a caretaker in her home.
• WILLMAR - Yasmany Navarro Pereira, 22, of Montevideo, pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of financial transaction card fraud for allegedly making fraudulent purchases on a debit card at Wal-Mart in Willmar.
As part of the plea agreement, an additional charge of financial transaction card fraud will be dismissed upon sentencing April 27.
According to the criminal complaint on the charges, Pereira allegedly used a stolen debit card to purchase $466 of clothing at Wal-Mart in Willmar. He also tried to buy an $523 iPad with the card, but the purchase was declined.
Using security footage, law enforcement was able to identify Pereira as a suspect.
Montevideo police officers executed a search warrant in December on Pereira’s residence and allegedly found items that matched those purchased with the stolen debit card. They also found several blank credit cards and a magnetic strip writer.
