*One of the oldest of crimes — a killing allegedly inspired by a husband’s jealousy — was solved with the aid of sophisticated technology, according to charges filed Monday that accuse a church pastor of murdering a popular staff member at Minneapolis North High School.
Derrick Trevor Griffin, 40, was charged with second-degree intentional murder for the May 10 shooting death of Kristopher Miller, 28.
