Absolutely. 100 percent agree. That includes ANYBODY who knowlingly commits murder. There are some horrible pre-teens that commit murder. And then televise the execution on the news. That will bring the murder rate down. I used to work in Anoka. That whole area up there of Anoka and Blaine is a sewer of sociopaths. So what's causing these horrible murders? It's in our culture, mainly in our music.

All that planning & plotting and that is what they came up with? Shoot him with a crossbow and throw him in a bonfire? brilliant!

The only winner in this story is Elizabeth's husband. Now he doesn't have to look at that beast every day.

That whole Anoka, Blaine and Champlin area is like another world. Real backwoodsy.

Looks like only one of the bunch had some brains, and the others killed him for it. Hope everything goes to the 6-year old daughter. It will never make up for her aunt and uncle killing her daddy, but at least she'll have some of her needs taken care of.

I TOTALLY agree with MN needing the death penalty. My cousin was murdered last year a week before x-mas. The killer was just sentence last week and will rot in jail for the rest of his life. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope they do the same with these three. Anyone who has enough balls to kill someone deserves the same that they did to that person. They do not deserve to live another day of their own life, and for us to pay for them to sit in prison.

I went to school with Kristina and was very good friends with her in 9th grade. THANK GOD our friendship did not last long. What an idiot. She deserves everything that is heading her way. I am still in complete shock that she is involved in this. I have heard stories about her after our friendship ended, but dang to this extent I would have never guessed.

It ain't over til the "fat lady" sings... Ed was harassing Liz - this doesn't show up in what you're reading now but it's true. I'm the neighbor to Liz.
She's a sweet lady, not a druggie... don't know about Andy. Ed was harassing.. cruising the alley... Liz shd've taken out a restraining order on him.
This shd all come out with the trial and I hope it does.
Nothing excuses murder, tho.
Don't know what happens, just know what I know.

How much was this inheritance supposed to be? I can't image an amount high enough for me to kill one of my siblings. I hope it all goes to the fatherless child.

I think Kristina was brainwashed by her crazy boyfriend Andy, and I think drugs played a HUGE factor.

I worked for both these guys one summer, just over a dozen years ago. Who would've thought? Ed was always the 'serious' one with the professional mindset and Andy was the 'fun' one full of charisma and always wanting to goof off. They were constantly bickering because of their personality differences, but this...this is shocking. Wow.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that drugs played a prominent role in this ordeal, as Andy very definitely (at least 12 years ago) lived an alternative lifestyle. I wont even mention what drugs i'd surmise to be involved, but by the looks of Andy's picture and his girlfriend (i remember his previous gf being outrageously attractive) he obviously let himself go at some point...

Dear "I Told You So":
Please do not make assumptions about the cities north of the metro. If you look closer at the story, Andy lived in Robbinsdale. The victim lived in Andover. Get your information right before generalizing the way that you have. I went to school with Andy from 7th grade through graduation (our schools are in Golden Valley and Plymouth-WEST of the metro if you hadn't heard). He was a drummer in our middle school and high school bands. Other than that, I have no idea what kind of kid he was or what kind of man he became. If he did, in fact, do what he's accused of, then HE has a problem; not the good, diverse, educated, hardworking, and caring people who live in Anoka, Blaine, or any other city in the north. Please use your brain before posting and stick with the issues at hand.
