Murder charges have been filed against three men in the violent death of a teenaged mother in Wright County.

The body of 19-year-old Cheyenne Lee Clough was found laying outside Crow Springs Park last Wednesday, barely clinging to life after being badly beaten and shot multiple times. She died of her injuries three days later at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale.

An autopsy revealed that she had been shot four times with a .22 caliber weapon, with wounds to the back of her head, her neck and shoulder.

Shawn T. Benson, 21, of Buffalo, and Justin M. Jensen, 28, of Maple Lake, and Edward V. Zelko, 26, of Buffalo, were charged with second-degree murder in the death of Cheyenne Clough, 19, also of Buffalo.

Benson is accused of being the one who fatally shot Clough with a handgun about 3 a.m. on June 1 at the entrance to Crow Springs Park in Franklin Township. The charges against Jensen and Zelko were for allegedly aiding and abetting in the killing.

The criminal complaint against Benson said that Clough argued with the others hours earlier in Benson’s home about someone snitching on her boyfriend, who was wanted by police on a drug warrant... Believing she was being driven home, Clough instead was taken to the park and shot several times by Benson and “left for dead,” the complaint read.
