Juvenile Suspect Charged In Susan Spiller's Cold Case Murder In Minneapolis

An unnamed suspect is charged in connection with the murder of activist and artist, Susan Spiller, who was found dead in her home in 2015.

According to police, the suspect was just 14 years old at the time of her murder, Fox 9 reports. Although he is now 18, the suspect remains anonymous because he was a juvenile when he allegedly committed the crime.

This big break in the cold case came about when the suspect turned 18 and his fingerprints, which were taken in an unrelated case, turned up as a match with those taken from the scene of Spiller's murder.

The suspect appeared in court on Tuesday and police filed a motion to have him stand trial as an adult.
