A Minnesota man has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for the murder of his 93-year-old grandmother, whom he killed with a tomahawk cleaver because he believed she had “tampered” with his bacon.

Dustin Gene Tinklenberg, 43, was convicted of second-degree murder in the killing of Stella Anderson, online court records show. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in August.

As Law&Crime previously reported, on September 13, 2022, officers responded to a request for a welfare check on a single-family home in the 1300 block of Highway 23 in Ogilvie, about 70 miles north of Minneapolis. Once there, first responders entered the home and discovered that Anderson had “died of apparent homicide.”
