Woman Who Stalked, Killed Ex in Brooklyn Park Faces 40 Years
A woman accused of stalking and then killing her ex-boyfriend in his Brooklyn Park home pleaded guilty to second-degree intentional murder.
39-year-old Rochelle Lynn Inselman of Eden Valley was indicted for first-degree murder and faced life in prison without parole. "The charges were reduced when she agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder", said Assistant Hennepin County Attorney Dominick Mathews.
Inselman pleaded guilty to shooting and killing 41-year old Bret Struck on February 12th.
Every case requires good investigation and help from citizens, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said. This case needed even more of both because initially police had no strong suspects. But a citizen in this case went beyond the usual assistance when he found a gun box he thought was unusual and turned it over to police and that made justice possible.
According to the criminal complaint, Inselman was obsessed with Struck since their relationship ended in 2004. She hacked into his Facebook account and sent defamatory emails about him to his friends and relatives. She also stole his identity to open four or five credit card accounts.
Inselman will be sentenced to 40 years Tuesday.
hell hath no fury like a woman scorned?
seriously this is nuttier than jimmy carter’s farms. no strong suspects, and he never let on to friends that this possessed woman was haunting him like that?
“What did he ever see in HER?”
I second that motion!
I have a hard time believing that EVER had a boyfriend. Girlfriend, maybe..........
What did he ever see in HER?
Obviously not him!
I wasn’t expecting that! 40 years w/o Twinkies and she may be ready and fit to stalk someone else.
Now, we need to see a picture of the boyfriend.
I find it hard to believe that any man who stalked and killed a woman would get off with a mere 40 years. She should be locked up for the rest of her life. Isn’t equality what feminists demand?
What a cutie!
Ref post #2.
Looks like she “at” him to...........
Nuke Jabba from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
They will maim or kill you while you aren't looking, simply for the hell of it.
Other than that, they're a lot of fun for the short run.
why did they let the woman plead down? they could easily get her on 1st degree murder.
women always get lesser punishments for doing the same garbage men do. it’s just disgusting.
Interesting how they could have had "no strong siuspects" until the gun box was found. I'd wager they really didn't care and were forced to take action when citizens provided info...
