Spirit Lake Man Pleads Not Guilty In Minnesota Woman's Death

  • Photo
SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa (AP) A northern Iowa man has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder for the death of a Minnesota woman.

The Sioux City Journal reports that 21-year-old Tailer Handsaker filed the written plea Friday in Dickinson County District Court. A trial date has not been set.

Handsaker is accused of killing 36-year-old Sarah Grimmius, of Jackson, Minn., on Dec. 5 at his home.

Police found Grimmius' body while responding to a Dec. 7 call about a woman who was unresponsive. Authorities have not said how Grimmius was killed or how she and Hansaker knew each other.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Handsaker would face a mandatory life prison sentence.
