Suspect in Duluth Grocery Store Murder Put in Treatment

Judge Orders Treatment for Duluth Murder Suspect

The trial for the man accused of stabbing a woman to death at the West Duluth Super One is now on hold.

Thirty-five year old Jesse Dahlstrom is facing a count of 1st degree premeditated murder for the death of 75–year–old Sally Pionk in December.

Attorneys had been awaiting the results of a mental competency examination and at this time there is no determination about his ability to stand trial.

Now in a separate civil proceeding Duluth judge David Johnson ordered Dahlstrom be committed for six months of treatment.

In the meantime, criminal proceedings remain suspended until further order of the court.
