Thirty-five-year-old Jacob Colt Johnson, from Superior, Wisconsin, was charged Monday with second-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Richard Balsimo, who investigators say was likely murdered in late June. His remains – placed in a tote bag and multiple buckets — were recovered in the lake near Grand Portage in mid-July.

Two other suspects — 41-year-old Robert Thomas West and 31-year-old Tommi Lynn Hintz, both from Duluth — have been formally charged in connection with Balsimo’s murder. West was charged in July with aiding an offender and interference with a dead body.
