WALKER -- Stephanie Lynn Day, 19, Burnsville, Dec. 10 became the fourth person arraigned in Cass County District Court on grand jury indictments relating to events surrounding the Oct. 5 beating death of Brian Jenny at Federal Dam.
Day is charged with felony second-degree assault of David Matzke, Jenny's brother-in-law, and with felony aiding an offender, Kenneth Conger Jr.
Judge John P. Smith set bail at $10,000. Day is scheduled to make her next court appearance Dec. 23.
Sheriff Randy Fisher and Assistant County Attorney Chris Strandlie declined to comment further on the indictments against Day, because testimony presented at the Nov. 8 grand jury was sealed.
Scheduled to appear for omnibus hearings in Cass County District Court, which were continued from Dec. 9, are Leah Danielle Jenkins-Harper, Kenneth Conrad Conger Jr. and Stephanie Dawn Losh.
Jenkins-Harper and Conger each face two counts of felony first-degree murder and four counts of felony second-degree murder in connection with Jenny's death. Losh faces one count of felony second-degree murder.
According to initial complaints filed against Conger in juvenile court and against Jenkins-Harper in district court, Jenny left a party Oct. 5 at Federal Dam with Jenkins-Harper and Conger to look for more beer.
Jenkins-Harper is alleged to have struck Jenny twice with a baseball bat after he allegedly pulled two knives on her and reportedly cut her finger in downtown Federal Dam. Conger is alleged to have repeatedly beaten Jenny at the same location.
The complaints allege the two then went back to the party and obtained Day's car, which Losh reportedly drove, to move Jenny from downtown Federal Dam to a location on Peter's Pond Road where hunters found him the next morning.
Jenny was transported to a Twin Cities hospital where he died Oct. 7 of injuries resulting from the beating.
Jenkins-Harper was arrested in Bena, where she lives. Conger was arrested in Burnsville when he turned himself in to police there.
