(Hastings, MN) — A Red Wing man now faces first-degree murder charges for allegedly strangling his girlfriend at a Hastings motel in May 2021. Dakota County prosecutors say a grand jury indicted 34-year-old Kyle Williams in the death of 36-year-old Kelly Jo Kocurek. He was already charged with second-degree murder. The criminal complaint says Williams was screaming when officers arrived at the motel and claimed that Kocurek strangled herself. She was hospitalized in a coma for five days before she died. Williams’ bond is set at two million dollars with conditions.
