Itasca County beheading suspects appear in court

GRAND RAPIDS -- The suspect in an Itasca County beheading death will not be back in court until the end of August, giving his defense attorney time to review evidence before deciding how to proceed.

Joseph Christen Thoresen, 35, made his second appearance in State District Court in Grand Rapids on Tuesday. He faces an intentional second-degree murder charge in the death of 20-year-old David Alexander Haiman of Hibbing.

At the brief hearing, Judge Korey Wahwassuck scheduled his next court appearance for Aug. 29. Thoresen continues to be held on bail of $1 million with conditions or $2 million without.
