A mother and son accused of murdering their father and bringing his body to Barron County say they thought animals would get to him before anyone else.
You may have seen the reports on WQOW-TV that 62-year-old Connie Herbst and 26-year-old Austin Herbst of Minnesota are charged with one count of hiding a corpse. They’re accused of killing 63-year-old Gary Herbst.
A criminal complaint filed recently says Austin admitted to shooting his father in the back of the head in 2013. His bones were found near Maple Grove in 2017. Connie and Austin each face ten-years for the charges in Barron County, and more charges are expected in Minnesota.
