Authorities in northwestern Minnesota say that a suspect has been arrested in connection to a fatal stabbing.

The stabbing took place at a home in Bagley in Clearwater County on Monday evening.

Christopher James Colgrove, 27, of Bagley has been booked into the Clearwater County Jail on a second-degree murder charge.  He made his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

According to the report, officers were called to a dispute on the 14000 block of 336th Street in Bagley.

Officers reportedly made contact with Colgrove who became uncooperative and fled on foot. When searching a neighboring residence for him, officers reportedly heard a woman inside the house yelling and observed a struggle between the woman and Colgrove.

Colgrove reportedly brandished a knife and stabbed the victim before running from the residence and into a wooded area.

The woman died from her wounds.
