WILLMAR, Minn. — The parents of 16-year-old Devon Jenkins sought Monday to have him released to their custody, saying he would be under close adult supervision and attend all scheduled court appearances. Eighth District Judge Michael Thompson denied the request, however, and ordered the youth to remain in detention at Prairie Lakes Youth Programs. Jenkins, accompanied by his parents, attorney and a group of family supporters, appeared in court Monday for a probable cause hearing on two charges of second-degree murder.
North Dakota Gov. Art Link earned a salary of just $27,500 in 1980, the country's lowest pay for a governor. Minnesota Gov. Al Quie was paid more than twice as much, with his $62,000 annual salary the country's eighth highest. But a review of historical data from the Council of State Governments shows that while North Dakota's salary has more than quadrupled since 1980, Minnesota's salary hasn't quite doubled in that same amount of time and hasn't gone up at all since 1998.
