Anoka man arrested, charged with murder of infant daughter


Benjamin Alexander Russel

Police arrested an Anoka man Friday and charged him with the 2009 murder of his infant daughter.

Benjamin Alexander Russell, 37, was charged with second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter in the baby's death, which happened 13 years ago, the Anoka County Sheriff's Office said.

After 3-month-old Suvanna LeeAnn Kreye-Russell died in her Coon Rapids crib in 2009, Russell initially told authorities he had put her down for a nap and found her facedown on a blanket. At the time, they determined the cause of death was "positional asphyxia/suffocation," according to the warrant for his arrest.
