Email News Alerts

The former owner of a Park Rapids glass company has been arraigned in two counties on firebombing charges in what authorities have characterized as long-simmering grudges against his ex-wife and his former workplace.


Leon Dewaine Jenkauski, 50, appeared Monday in Hubbard County District Court on felony charges of arson and manufacturing an incendiary or explosive device.

He was arraigned last week in Cass County on similar charges.
