Stillwater Man Charged in Oak Park Heights Murder

A 24-year-old Stillwater man has been charged with second-degree intentional murder in the death of Nils Johnson.

Washington County Attorney Pete Orput announced that second-degree intentional murder charges were filed late yesterday against Nathan Nigel Anthony Eldredge, 24, of Stillwater.

A warrant for Eldredge’s arrest was entered into the national database and Eldredge was arrested shortly after midnight by authorities in Matteson, Ill.

“We are heartened by the very efficient and thorough investigation by law enforcement in this case,” Orput said in a news release. “This office is preparing to extradite Eldredge from Illinois should it become necessary. We are prepared to bring all our resources to bear to bring this prosecution to a successful end.”
