Deputy will not be charged in shooting death

McLeod County Deputy Sheriff Matthew Wyatt will not be charged in the Nov. 1 shooting death of Hutchinson resident Luverne Christensen, it was announced Tuesday afternoon.

The McLeod County Attorney's Office has found that Wyatt's action was legal under the Minnesota statute that governs the "use of deadly force to protect any person from apparent death or bodily harm."

"Deputy Wyatt's use of deadly force was authorized. No charges will be filed," wrote McLeod County Attorney Michael Junge in a statement of findings.
