MN - Richard Baity, 41, dragged to death, Ogema, 15 Aug 2014
Jessica Marie Kilde, 33, of rural Ogema, is charged with second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter in the death of her boyfriend, Richard Alan Baity, 41, also of rural Ogema. She appeared Tuesday in Becker County District Court.
Sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call around 10 p.m. Friday of a person who had been run over by a vehicle on 370th Street East in Maple Grove Township. They found Baity’s body on the road about 160 feet from his driveway.
According to the criminal complaint, injuries to Baity’s body and evidence at the scene indicated he was dragged to the scene. A broken portion of tie down strap located nearby appears to be consistent with ligature marks on Baity’s neck...
The vehicle had a strap tied to the top of the door frame of the passenger side rear door that matched the strap located near Baity’s body.
Court documents said Baity and Kilde were drinking and doing meth the night he died....
Court documents we obtained say Kilde changed her story several times. Originally she told authorities that when she got in her car, Baity was standing on the deck. Another time, she said she had very little recollection of what happened and how Baity ended up on the road.

A northwestern Minnesota woman who murdered her boyfriend by tying a strap around his neck and dragging him behind his SUV was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison.
Jessica Kilde, 33, of Ogema pleaded guilty to second-degree intentional murder of Richard Baity, 41, of rural Ogema -- the man she says she loved and had planned on marrying...
Public safety is one of the reasons Evans cited for giving Kilde the maximum sentence. "She said her and Mr. Baity were in love, and if she would do something like this to somebody she loves, it makes me wonder what she could do to somebody she doesn't," said Evans. "It was calculated, it was brutal."
