(Fox News) A man in northern Minnesota faces a murder charge for allegedly beating and decapitating his girlfriend's alleged rapist, local media reported Thursday.
According to a criminal complaint, Joseph Christen Thoresen beat David Haiman with a baseball bat, stabbed him, then used a machete to decapitate him as Haiman was groaning on the ground near the community of Ball Club last week. Thoresen then dragged Haiman's torso and threw his head into the woods, according to the complaint.
