OLIVIA — A southwestern Minnesota man has admitted to killing his girlfriend with a bow and arrow before trying to take his own life.

According to a press release, 29-year-old Dwayne Alan Case of Franklin pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree murder in the death of 45-year-old Elizabeth Gregg of Morgan.

Court documents show Renville County deputies were called to a remote campsite south of Franklin on June 12 and found Case in a tent with a gunshot wound to his jaw. The deputies discovered Gregg’s body when they removed Case from the tent.
