A Renville County man has been sentenced to more than 34 years in prison for killing his girlfriend with a bow and arrow, according to the case details.

Dwayne Case, 30, had been charged with second-degree murder. He pleaded guilty to the crime in 2015.

The incident happened at a campground near Franklin on June 12, 2015, the sheriff's department says.

When officials arrived, they found Case inside a tent with a gunshot wound to his jaw. His girlfriend, Elizabeth Gregg of Morgan, was found dead, according to the news release.

Police told KSTP Gregg's death was ruled a homicide and Case had tried to kill himself.

Case was taken to the hospital for his injuries. He tested positive for methamphetamine, the West Central Tribune wrote.

An autopsy showed the woman had died after an arrow perforated her stomach and liver, KLGR reports.

According to the Duluth News Tribune, the two had been living together for about nine months, and a coworker had described their relationship as "terrible."

Officials later found a note in Case's vehicle that read, "Lizzy and Dewy 4ever eternal life 6-12-15," the paper says.

Case has been convicted as a felon and will serve 415 months in a correctional facility.
