Dikken in Custody 18 Sep 13

A suspect has been arrested in a double homicide which took place in Granite Falls earlier this month.

28-year-old Andrew Joseph Dikken was taken into custody on Tuesday at about 3 p.m.

Dikken was brought to the Renville County Sheriff’s Office in Olivia by family members who have been cooperating with the investigation and related search for Dikken over the past two weeks. 

Dikken was being sought in the September 2nd shooting deaths of 26-year-old Kara Ann Monson, of Granite Falls and 28-year-old Christopher Allen Panitzke, of Redwood Falls.

Reports say Dikken was transported to the Yellow Medicine County Jail in Granite Falls, where he will be held pending arraignment in Yellow Medicine County District Court.
