MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A 19-year-old Minnesota man, suspected of killing a woman who answered a Craigslist ad, has been charged with second-degree murder.
Michael Anderson is accused of shooting Katherine Ann Olson in the back at his home outside Minneapolis. Authorities say the 24-year-old woman went to his home to respond to an online ad for a babysitter.
Olson's body was found in the trunk of her car in a park a few blocks from Anderson's place. Authorities say blood was found in the suspect's home and a gun was found in his bedroom.
Anderson is being held on one million dollars bail. According to a criminal complaint, he says a friend did the killing.
