Two men were charged with two counts of third degree murder in St. Cloud after the fire killed an 85-year-old woman.

A news release from Stearns County Attorney’s office says Justin Edward Pick and Dustin Ross Zablocki were given their charges on Wednesday. The Honorable Fredrick Grunke has determined a 500,000 dollar bail without any condition or 100,000 dollar bail with condition for Pick.  Grunke has also set a 500,000 dollar bail without any condition or a 250,000 dollar bail with condition for Zablocki.

St. Cloud Fire Department says Pick and Zablocki caused the fire that happened in November of 2014 in the 1900 block of 1st Street South. As a result, one of the residents of the home was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center where she died two weeks after the incident because of smoke inhalation.

Pick and Zablocki are currently at the Stearns County Jail and will have another hearing on May 15th.

St. Cloud Police Warns Of Phone Scam Targeting SCSU Foreign Students
The St. Cloud Police Department has issued a warning of a phone scam that appears to be targeting foreign students at St. Cloud State University.
 
Sergeant Jason Burke says the department’s front desk received several calls from citizens saying someone had called them from the phone number 320-251-1200.
 
The calls varied from no conversation at all to one individual claiming to be the IRS and if the person did not pay money they would be expelled from school and arrested.
 
The police department advises that if you receive a call from 320-251-1200, that call is most likely a hoax.
