ROCHESTER, Minn. – A southern Minnesota man is no longer accused of hounding a woman into committing suicide.
Charges of 3rd degree murder and 2nd degree manslaughter have been dismissed against 35 year old Long Vang of Rochester. He was arrested in June after the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said he drove the mother of his children to kill herself.
Authorities claimed that the physical abuse the woman suffered from Vang contributed to her declining mental health in the months leading up to her suicide in December, 2015.
However, he now is facing only a felony charge of pattern of stalking conduct. No trial date has been set.
