BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) - A Minnesota man charged with fatally stabbing a Wisconsin fisherman is back in jail after allegedly tweeting about the victim.

Charges filed in Polk County say 19-year-old Levi Acre-Kendall tweeted on May 7 that if anyone is praying for him, they should also keep the victim’s family in mind.

Acre-Kendall is charged with reckless homicide in the death of 34-year-old Peter Kelly of St. Croix Falls. Authorities say he stabbed Kelly on April 14 after an argument along the St. Croix River.

The Star Tribune reports (https://strib.mn/1QQpERe ) Acre-Kendall was free on bond when he sent the tweet and wasn’t supposed to have contact with friends who witnessed the stabbing. The charges say Acre-Kendall’s tweet was seen by both men.

Acre-Kendall’s attorney has said his client acted in self-defense.
