Man Arrested in Cold Spring Cop Death Pleads in Stalking Case
A man arrested but not charged in the killing of Cold Spring Police Officer Tom Decker has pleaded guilty to stalking his ex-girlfriend in Wright County.
According to the Wright County Attorney's Office, 34-year-old Ryan Michael Larson pleaded guilty Tuesday to the felony stalking charge. Sentencing is scheduled for May 7.
Larson was arrested Nov. 29, the night Decker was shot to death behind a bar in Cold Spring. He spent four days in jail as a suspect in that killing before being released without being charged.
He has maintained his innocence and said he had nothing to do with Decker's death.
