Email News Alerts

A case against the suspect in an Osakis murder has taken a twist.

Jeffrey Allan Brooks, 52, of Alexandria, was scheduled to be sentenced in Todd County District Court on Monday, February 13. Last November, he had entered a guilty plea to second-degree murder charges in the death of 51-year-old Diane Fortenberry, who was killed on May 20, 2011.


Now Brooks is attempting to change his plea and his sentencing hearing is on hold.
