WALKER -- Stephanie Lynn Day, 20, Burnsville, pleaded not guilty recently in Cass County District Court to felony second-degree assault and aiding an offender.
An omnibus hearing was set for March 10.
A Cass County grand jury filed the two felony indictments against Day Nov. 8 after hearing evidence surrounding events connected with the Oct. 5 beating at Federal Dam and subsequent death of Brian Jenny.
According to court complaints filed before grand jury hearings against other suspects in the case, it is alleged Day's car was used to transport Jenny from downtown Federal Dam to Peter's Pond Road. Hunters found Jenny there several hours later in a near-death condition.
The second-degree assault indictment against Day specifies the assault she is accused of committing as being against David Matzke, brother-in-law of Jenny.
The aiding an offender indictment specifies she "did harbor, conceal, aid or assist, by words or acts" a person she had reason to believe had committed a crime. The indictment names Kenneth Conger Jr. as the alleged criminal she is accused of concealing and the crime he committed as second-degree assault on Jenny.
The juvenile court complaint filed against Conger before grand jury hearings and indictments indicates Conger turned himself in to the Burnsville Police Department.
None of the information filed in complaints or indictments indicates at what point in the series of events Oct. 5 Day is alleged to have assaulted Matzke or with what type of weapon.
