Brooklyn Park man arrested in connection with New Brighton death

A Brooklyn Park man is in custody on suspicion of third-degree murder in the death of a New Brighton woman.

Authorities arrested the 28-year-old on Dec. 17 after a brief chase, according to the New Brighton Department of Public Safety.

The investigation began on Dec. 13, when New Brighton officers responded to an apartment at 721 First Ave. NW and found a 28-year-old woman not breathing. Lifesaving efforts by paramedics failed.

Days later, the man was arrested in the 7100 block of West Broadway Avenue in Brooklyn Park. He and the women allegedly knew each other, according to the department.

As of press time, Ramsey County charges against the man were pending.
