HIBBING — Authorities say an Aurora man found dead on a snowmobile trail in Hibbing was blindfolded, marched into the woods and shot twice in the face for allegedly pursuing another man’s 17-year-old girlfriend.
The body of 33-year-old Joshua LaValley was found Sunday along the Mesabi Trail.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports 18-year-old Deshon Bonnell and 20-year-old Anthony Howson were each charged Thursday with second-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery. They’re jailed in lieu of $1 million bail and are scheduled to appear in court Jan. 17.
