    Minneapolis defense lawyer Ron Meshbesher dies at 85

    Minneapolis attorney Ron Meshbesher, who began his decades-long legal career as a Hennepin County prosecutor and retired as one of Minnesota's best-known defense lawyers, died Wednesday at age 85. Meshbesher suffered from Alzheimer's disease in the last years of his life and had moved into an assisted-living facility in Deephaven a few months ago, his brother said. Meshbesher became a household name in the late 1970s when he won an acquittal for Marjorie Caldwell, who was accused of orchestrating the murder of her mother, Elisabeth Congdon, and a nurse at the Glensheen mansion in Duluth.
