Relatives of Michael Allen Nakvinda, arrested Saturday in the death of a Fargo dentist, are taking the news hard, a sister of Nakvinda says.


Nakvinda, of Oklahoma City, is in jail there and may face a number of charges in connection with the Oct. 26 death of Philip Gattuso in Fargo.

Most of Nakvinda's relatives live in Oklahoma, a Forum records search shows.

Denise Nakvinda, Michael's sister and a Dover, Okla., resident, was reached by The Forum on Sunday.
