Case Sentenced to 34-years For Killing Girlfriend 16 Feb 16

A Minnesota man who pleaded guilty to killing his girlfriend with a bow and arrow was sentenced today (Tuesday) to more than 34 years in years.

30-year-old Dwayne Alan Case of Franklin pleaded guilty in December to second-degree murder. He was sentenced in Renville County District Court to 34 years and five months but will get credit for six months served.

Case’s girlfriend was found dead June 12th 2015 when Renville County deputies were called to a remote campsite south of Franklin.

According to the criminal complaint, Case was found in a tent with a gunshot wound to his jaw. Deputies say Case had tried to kill himself.

After deputies removed Case from the tent, they found the body of his girlfriend, who was identified as 45-year-old Elizabeth Gregg of Morgan.

Gregg’s death was ruled a homicide. An autopsy revealed that an arrow had perforated her stomach and liver.

Deputies say a compound bow and quiver of arrows were found in the tent.
