44-year-old Wahpeton man arrested in gunshot death of Doran woman

BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. - Jeffrey Allen Silvernail, 44, has been arrested in the death of 49-year-old Lori Roberts on Oct. 2 in Doran.

A preliminary autopsy in October showed that Roberts, who was found shot dead in her home, died from the gunshot wound.

Silvernail, 44, of Wahpeton, N.D., has been charged with second-degree intentional murder, said Wilkin County Attorney Timothy Fox. Silvernail is being held at the Wilkin County Jail in Breckenridge and will make his first court appearance tomorrow.

Fox said it appears Silvernail had been in a relationship with Roberts that started in 2005 or 2006, and it appeared the relationship ended shortly before her murder.
