A bill has been introduced in the Minnesota House that would protect a victim’s property if a spouse if accused of killing them. The legislation stems from the murder of James Nibbe in Lake Crystal in 2010. Vernon Center Republican Tony Cornish says that after Nibbe was murdered by his wife Jennifer, the family had trouble getting his property back. Jennifer Nibbe’s father had taken several items from her home after she was arrested for killing her husband, and some of those items were lost or destroyed. The new bill will receive a hearing in the House today (TUE). Jennifer Nibbe is currently serving a 17-year prison sentence for the murder.
