MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say they have arrested a man suspected of killing a Minneapolis woman on New Year’s Eve.
The Star Tribune reports that search warrant affidavits filed Friday allege that 28-year-old Monique Baugh was abducted before she was found in an alley with duct tape wrapped around one of her wrists.
A 41-year-old man was booked on probable cause murder but has not been formally charged.
Court documents show that Baugh, a realtor, was kidnapped by someone driving a U-Haul rental truck while she was showing a home in Maple Grove.
Authorities believe her killing is tied to an alleged drug rivalry between the suspect and Baugh’s boyfriend.
