Two arrested in Badger slaying to appear in court Tuesday

ROSEAU, Minn. - A man and woman from Badger are scheduled to appear Tuesday in Minnesota district court in Roseau in connection with the homicide of a Badger man Saturday, said Sheriff Steve Gust Monday.

A Roseau County jail official said Jeremy Lemen, 34, and Desiree Shinholser, 24, were booked in on Saturday on provisional charges of second-degree murder.

Lemen and Shinholser lived together in the same eight-unit apartment building in Badger as the victim, John Currier, who lived alone. He was found dead Saturday morning in the building.

Sheriff Gust did not release the names of the three Monday, citing the pending formal complaint and the need to notify family members.

Badger is a town of around 370 about 12 miles southwest of Roseau, in extreme northwest Minnesota.

The owner of the apartment building where they lived said Currier worked at Polaris Industries in Roseau. Currier was about 31 and formerly lived in International Falls, Minn., where he still has family, the landlord said.
