ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Two men face third-degree murder charges in a St. Cloud house fire that killed an 85-year-old woman.
An 18-year-old St. Cloud man and a 19-year-old Sauk Rapids man were booked into Stearns County Jail. They're set to appear in court and criminal complaints are expected to be filed against them Wednesday.
Stearns County Attorney Janelle Kendall says the men are accused of causing the Nov. 22 explosion and house fire that killed Sally Douglas. She died at a hospital two weeks later.
Investigators have determined the explosion and fire caused by a marijuana wax manufacturing operation. The St. Cloud Times reports the Department of Public Safety is hosting a news conference Wednesday in St. Paul to discuss the emergence of marijuana wax in Minnesota and the danger of manufacturing it.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A jury is set to hear closing arguments early next week in the murder trial of a 40-year-old man charged with killing a Mendota Heights police officer.
The St. Cloud Times reports the Stearns County jurors will be sequestered until they reach a verdict after hearing closing arguments Monday morning. The defense rested its case Thursday after Brian Fitch Sr. announced he was waiving his right to testify at trial.
Fitch is charged with first-degree murder in the July 30, 2014 shooting of officer Scott Patrick. Prosecutors allege Fitch fatally shot Patrick after he pulled the suspect's vehicle over in West St. Paul.
Police say Fitch was involved in a shootout with officers before his arrest.

Three cars were damaged as a result of a roll-over accident on the south side of St. Cloud Tuesday night.
St. Cloud Police Lieutenant Jeff Oxton says officers responded to a three car accident at the intersection of Washington Memorial Drive and University Drive South at 6:53 p.m. Oxton says the police investigation shows 50-year-old Debra Dee Jones of St. Cloud was driving her SUV eastbound on University Drive while making an attempt to turn onto northbound Washington Memorial Drive. Jones failed to yield and collided head on with a car attempting to pass the westbound intersection on University Drive on a green light.
As a result, the car driven by 39-year-old Anthony Wade Welvaert of St. Cloud rolled over on the right side of the vehicle and slid into another car stopped in the south lane of Washington Memorial Drive. Jones' car received severe damage, while Welvaert’s car had moderate damage. The third vehicle only had minor damage.
Oxton says Jones was cited for failing to yield at the right way, while Welvaert was cited for driving with a revoked license. Jones went to the St. Cloud hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
