MN - Angel Linderman, 28, shot to death near Red Wing, 9 Sept 2014
During the 911 call initially made at 11:48 a.m. Sept. 9, a man who identified himself as Rix said he had shot Linderman but that she was still alive, and he asked for a medical helicopter.
When a deputy responded to the scene at 260th Street and 90th Avenue in the town of Baldwin, Linderman was found dead, covered by a blue tarp, with her head near the car's front passenger floorboards and her feet extending into the rear seating area, the criminal complaint states. There was also a car tire on top of her body, and she was concealed from the outside of the car -- a black Mercury Cougar registered to Linderman...
On the ground near Rix were a .22-caliber revolver and a knife, and he was taken into custody. At one point, an investigator allegedly heard him yell during a medical examination, "I actually shot my girlfriend this morning" and "I shot my girlfriend in the face today on accident," the complaint states.
A 22-year-old Lake City, Minn., man was charged in St. Croix County Circuit Court on Monday with felony counts of first-degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse, and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the shooting death of his girlfriend, Angel C. Linderman, 28, of Lake City.
Tanner J. Rix faces life in prison if convicted of first-degree intentional homicide, which is a Class A felony. In his court appearance Monday, St. Croix County Circuit Judge Eric Lundell asked if Rix understood the gravity of the charges. His answer was yes.
Rix is being held on a $250,000 bond.

St. Croix County prosecutor announced Wednesday that a murder case against a Lake City, Minn., man accused of killing his girlfriend will be tried in Minnesota, not Wisconsin.
During a plea hearing in St. Croix County Circuit Court, Assistant District Attorney Michael Nieskes told the court that Tanner J. Rix admitted this week to law enforcement that he shot and killed his girlfriend, Angel Linderman, on County Highway 19 “near Red Wing.”
Rix pleaded no contest at the hearing to one count of hiding a corpse, a felony. As part of an agreement, a first-degree murder charge was dismissed -- upon the filing of similar charges in Minnesota.
