Police have said they think that the victim was targeted because the alleged killers thought she was a police informant, according to WJON.

St. Cloud police Officers were dispatched for a report of a person lying on the edge of the road. The victim, Keisa Lange, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene and had been shot multiple times, according to WJON.

Police used witnesses, video surveillance, a phone call from the Stearns County jail and a note referencing Lange working for the “feds” to build their case, WJON reported.

Stearns County prosecutors have charged Deantae Davis, 26, Kenneth Carter, 26, Alicia Lewis, 26, and Angela Jones, 33, with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

Jones also faces a charge of aiding and abetting kidnapping.


Court records show Jones told police they brought Lange to the end of the street, where Daivs allegedly shot her inside the car, WJON reported.

Once the victim was removed from the vehicle, Jones said Carter shot her several more times, according to WJON.

The group allegedly left Lange’s body there and went to an address on Washington Memorial Drive, sanitized the car, burned clothing and destroyed cell phones, WJON reported.

Court records show forensic scientists still found evidence of blood in the car, despite the suspects’ efforts to wipe it down.

All four suspects are now in police custody. Jones was already in the Stearns County Jail on an unrelated child endangerment case.
