St. Cloud woman convicted of murder

ST. CLOUD – A Stearns County judge has convicted a St. Cloud woman of murder.

Forty one years old Lindsay Shelltrack-Miller was convicted of 2nd degree murder without intent while committing a felony.

Shelltrack-Miller refused a jury trial and instead chose a bench trial where the judge determined the verdict.

St. Cloud Police were called to a house on the 1500 block of 9th Avenue North on April 19. Agents found at 36 Justin Bergé with a stab and panting sounds. He was taken to hospital where he later died.

According to the charges, Shelltrack-Miller called 911 to report that she stabbed Berge after an argument. It started when she said that she had thrown water on Berge two or three times. Berge then allegedly threw a can of soft drink at him.

The woman said Berge was coming towards her and she sprayed him with pepper. She said Berge then threw her to the ground and knelt on top of her. That’s when the woman said she reached into her fanny pack, grabbed a knife, stretched her hand across his body to try and cut it. to make it go back.

Court records show police watched surveillance footage that showed Berge running down the alley to escape the woman as she clung to her back as if trying to grab something. As Berge is seen picking up items from the ground, Shelltrack-Miller is said to have started kicking him and pulverizing him with sledgehammers.

Police said the video shows the man trying to restrain Shelltrack-Miller as she reaches into her bag and pulls something out. Charges indicate that this is when she extends her arm in a stabbing motion towards Berge’s chest.

No sentencing date has yet been set.
