DULUTH — A Duluth woman is accused of giving police a false alibi for her boyfriend, who has been charged with murder in last month's shooting death of Timothy Jon Nelson.
Taylor Ann Fredrickson, 27, is the fourth person to be arrested and charged in connection with the West Duluth homicide.
Fredrickson, who authorities said is in a relationship with co-defendant Christopher Floyd Boder, was arraigned Friday afternoon, Oct. 4, on a felony charge of aiding an offender as an accomplice after the fact.
According to a criminal complaint, Fredrickson told police two days after Nelson's death that she was with Boder at the time of the crime.
"The evidence obtained during the course of the investigation has revealed that (Fredrickson's) statement to law enforcement about defendant Boder being with her the entire night so he could not have committed the murder was false," authorities said in the complaint charging Fredrickson.
Nelson, 33, was shot in the abdomen while sitting in a car on the 300 block of North 62nd Avenue West at about 1:45 a.m. Sept. 22. He was quickly pronounced dead.
Authorities on Sept. 27 charged Boder, 33, and James Michael Peterson, 38, with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
