Man indicted in death of 2nd woman found in trunk

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man has been charged in the death of a second woman whose body was found in the trunk of a car in the Minneapolis area.

A Hennepin County grand jury Thursday indicted Alberto Palmer on two counts of first-degree murder.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports the latest charges against Palmer come in the death of 24-year-old Klaressa Cook of St. Paul. Palmer was charged earlier this year with killing 18-year-old Brittany Clardy, also of St. Paul.

The bodies of both women were discovered in vehicles in Twin Cities impound lots — one in Anoka County, one in Minneapolis.

Cook’s body was discovered last May in a car that had been towed to Minneapolis from Brooklyn Park.

Palmer has been in the Anoka County jail awaiting trial in Clardy’s death.
