LITTLE FALLS – A Morrison County judge sentenced a Little Falls man to 15 years in prison for the murder of his wife last February.
A jury found a 31-year-old Jonathan Greyblood committed second-degree murder without intent while committing a felony in October.
Greyblood will be given credit for serving a 304-day sentence in county jail.
Morrison County court filings allege Greyblood admitted to investigators that he strangled a 37-year-old man Jeanine Greyblood to death and dumped her body under the bridge after a night out.
Her body was discovered the next morning.
According to the criminal complaint, Jonathan Greyblood called the police in the early morning of February 6 to report his wife missing. He said the two got into an argument after leaving a friend’s house and she went to her car.
Greyblood told police at the time that his wife told him to drive home and get his coat as she was about to walk to a friend’s house. The husband said he did and when he returned he could not find her. The next day, as searchers continued to search for Jeanine Greyblood, her husband was taken to the police station to provide a second testimony.
Records show he admitted that the two argued. He said his wife yelled at him and hit him. He claimed they were in their car in the driveway when he put his hand around her throat in self-defense and squeezed until she softened. Greyblood allegedly started CPR but was unsuccessful and she died.
The complaint says he told investigators he panicked and then drove her to the Swan River Bridge on Great River Road, south of Little Falls, and dumped her body.
Police then drove to the site and found Jeanine Greyblood’s body on the ice beneath the bridge.
