Minissale considering mental illness defense

Minissale faces first-degree charge

(Continued)

During Friday's hearing, Assistant Blue Earth County Attorney Pat McDermott asked Johnson to consider a motion requesting that Minissale provide "major case prints" to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Those types of prints pull identifying markers from a suspect's fingers, thumbs and palms to be compared to prints found on evidence, McDermott said.

The BCA had provided McDermott with a report saying those types of prints would be needed to complete tests. Hunter didn't object to the request and the motion was granted by Johnson.
