Rochester Home Invasion Suspect Charged With Fatal Overdose
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM NEWS) - One of the men charged in connection with a recent home invasion in Rochester is also facing murder charges in Dodge County.
Donte Wilkins, 19, was among the three men arrested a few hours after police responded to a home invasion involving guns at an apartment near the RCTC campus on March 25. He was charged with felony assault and burglary and is being held in the Olmsted County Jail on $100,000 bail.
Dodge County officials issued a warrant for his arrest the following Monday and he is scheduled to appear before a judge in Mantorville on June 28 to face second- and third-degree murder charges stemming from the December 8 drug overdose death of a Kasson man. An autopsy determined 23-year-old Tyler Gray died from a toxic mix of fentanyl, methamphetamine and heroin. Dodge County prosecutors allege Wilkins supplied the drugs.
Meanwhile, a sixth arrest has been made in connection to a home invasion near RCTC. The latest suspect to be charged is 21-year-old Jamial Brown. He was arraigned on Monday and his conditional bail was set at $75,000.
