Charges Filed in Faribault Murder Case
FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have charged a Minnesota man with killing a suicidal Ohio woman he met online.
A criminal complaint filed Monday in Rice County District Court says 26-year-old Chelsea Martinez traveled to Faribault in southern Minnesota to meet 39-year-old Jason Nisbit to talk about suicide.
The Faribault Daily News reports the complaint says they met at a motel July 31 and agreed to meet the next morning. It says they drove separately to a park, then walked to a wooded area where Nisbit bound her hands and feet, strangled her until she lost consciousness, then cut her throat.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Martinez' sister reported her missing Aug. 1 after seeing a Facebook post indicating she was suicidal.
