Heidi Firkus Death – Obituary :A man of Mounds View has been indicted in the murder of his wife in 2010 as of last week.
38-year-old Nicholas James Firkus was charged by a Ramsey County grand jury on first- and second-degree murder charges on Wednesday, according to court records.
Firkus was arrested in May on suspicion of killing 25-year-old Heidi Firkus more than a decade ago in St. Paul.
Reports said Firkus originally told the police that people broke into his home and shot Heidi, and also shot him in the leg in the incident.
Detectives later learned of the couple’s financial troubles, which Heidi may have been left in the dark at the time.
Firkus next arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 12.
