Paul Edward Mart killed his wife

News of the allegations of violence broke Monday after Mart’s arrest after an hour-long standoff led to an evacuation and a response from authorities from multiple law enforcement agencies, including a SWAT team, according to a news release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office in Minnesota. The Sheriff’s Office received a call about a dead woman at a home in the Big Pine Lake area east of Perham, more than an hour east across the border from Fargo, North Dakota.

The Wadena Pioneer Journal, citing the criminal complaint, reported that the suspect allegedly made comments that he “remembered getting into a fight,” “bashed her head on the granite floor multiple times,” “can’t forgive himself,” and “probably killed her.”

Fargo, North Dakota’s KVLY-TV reported the suspect had three weapons and appeared drunk. He allegedly threatened to shoot the officers if they came and said, “they’re going to have to kill him.” The police brought in a negotiator, and Mart finally gave up. He was booked into the Otter Tail County Jail. He found a gun in a trash can, according to news reports.


Mart’s attorney, Chris Cadem, told the newspaper it was an accident and there is currently no evidence linking his client to the gun. “Based again on the information we have discovered in the last 48 hours, we are confident that the gunshot residue will return to the hands of the deceased,” he said. “We are very confident that my client will be able to show that this was in fact an accident, that this did not happen by any action or deliberate act of my client, and that he will be exonerated of this charge.”

Otter Tail County District Attorney Michelle Eldien filed a second-degree murder charge against her. “The charge is an intentional murder based on the evidence that was collected and known when the complaint was filed,” she said in an email to Law & Crime. Her next court date is set for August 2. Read more……..
