Man accused of killing angler on St. Croix back in jail over tweets


The man accused of stabbing a Wisconsin angler on the banks of the St. Croix River last month is back in jail for allegedly breaking his bail conditions – because of Twitter.

WCCO reports that 19-year-old Levi Acre-Kendall, who has been charged with the first-degree reckless homicide of Peter Kelly, was charged Thursday with two felony counts of jumping bail.

A condition of the bond Acre-Kendall posted was that he was not to contact certain people associated with the case, including over social media, the news station said.

But he is accused of posting tweets including one which said: "If you are praying for me, please keep the Kelly family in mind as well, I never intended for this to happen and I wish it never did."

According to KARE 11, Acre-Kendall, of Cambridge, Minnesota, was arrested in Isanti County over the alleged violation, and has jailed in Polk County, Wisconsin, while proceedings against him unfold.

KARE 11 added that Acre-Kendall only posted bail a week ago, with FOX 9 reporter Paul Blume noting that he had put up $75,000 cash to get out.

He has pleaded not guilty to the reckless homicide charged levied against him in the death of 34-year-old Peter Kelly, which followed a confrontation that started on the opposite sides of the St. Croix River at Interstate Park on April 14.
