A North Branch man has been indicted by a Chisago County grand jury on two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct linked to a 2010 cold case.

According to a news release, 44-year-old Donald Warner was previously charged in December of 2023 for the criminal conduct supporting the indictment.

Chisago County prosecutors are now able to seek a life sentence if he is convicted in district court.
