Arrest warrant issued in double homicide in Granite Falls, Minn.

GRANITE FALLS, Minn. — An arrest warrant has been issued for the former boyfriend of a Granite Falls woman who was fatally shot along with another man.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says Andrew Dikken is wanted in the shooting deaths of 26-year-old Kara Monson and her 28-year-old boyfriend, Chris Panitzke, of Redwood Falls.

Dikken has been missing since the two were shot Sept. 2 at Monson's home. Authorities say Dikken's vehicle was found Sept. 4 north of Belview.

About 600 people gathered at Granite Falls Lutheran Church Tuesday for Monson's funeral. Friends and family members described Monson as a loving mother and someone who always saw the best in others.
