No charges expected in Devils Lake inmate's death


DEVILS LAKE--No charges are likely to be pressed for the May death of a Devils Lake jail inmate who was found dead in his cell just hours after being jailed.

The death of John Wilke, 42, was attributed to suicide, from a "mixed drug toxicity" from a lethal combination of drugs, Devils Lake Police Detective Sue Schwab said in June.

While the investigation is not officially closed, Ramsey County State's Attorney Lonnie Olson said charges are not expected.
