DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (AP) - A northern Minnesota woman accused of killing her boyfriend by dragging him with an SUV has pleaded guilty to charges.

Jessica Kilde will be sentenced for second-degree intentional murder in Becker County March 16. Prosecutors say the 33-year-old Ogema woman tied Richard Baity to the vehicle using a strap around his neck last August and dragged him down the driveway and onto the road. His body was found about 50 yards from his driveway in Maple Grove Township.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1zY0hI1 ) reports a criminal complaint says Kilde told authorities she and Baity had a disagreement that night, but that it was nothing serious. Authorities say the two had been drinking and smoking methamphetamine earlier in the day.
