Minn. Supreme Court to hear suicides case appeal
Law Center | 2012/10/22 13:42
The Minnesota Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal of a former
nurse convicted of searching out suicidal people in online chat rooms
and encouraging them to commit suicide.

William Melchert-Dinkel of Faribault was convicted in 2011 on two
counts of aiding suicide. The Minnesota Court of Appeals in July
rejected his argument that he was merely practicing free speech.

In an order Tuesday, the state Supreme Court agreed to review the
case. A date for oral arguments has not been set.

Melchert-Dinkel was convicted in the deaths of 32-year-old Mark
Drybrough, of Coventry, England, and 18-year-old Nadia Kajouji, of
Brampton, Ontario, in 2008.

Melchert-Dinkel faces about a year in jail unless his conviction is
overturned. He remains free pending appeal.
