Trial to Start Monday for Rochester Man Charged in Woman’s Death
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- A Court trail is scheduled to start Monday for a Rochester man accused of fatally running over his girlfriend while under the influence of a controlled substance in 2018.
41-year-old Dewain Siewert is charged with criminal vehicular homicide. Court records say he told police the two were looking for their cat and 39-year-old Emily Jacobsen was apparently on her hands and knees looking under a boat when she was run over in an ally near 16 12th St. Northwest.
Jacobsen died the next day. Siewert admitted to smoking methamphetamine a few hours before the accident, according to the criminal complaint.
Test results showed traces of amphetamine and methamphetamine in Siewert's blood at the time of the deadly incident, according to court records. He was formally charged for Jacobson's death in March 2019.
