The couple accused of killing Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind allegedly provided police with conflicting stories about how they ended up with the missing woman’s baby.
WDAY has reported that William Henry Hoehn, 32, and Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, are charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, and providing false information to law enforcement. The pair appeared in Cass County District Court Monday afternoon, hours after the 22-year-old’s body was found.
Police later identified Crews as the neighbor who asked LaFontaine-Greywind for help with a sewing project. Crews was arrested Thursday after officers allegedly found a healthy 2-day-old girl in her apartment. Hoehn, who was not on-site when officers executed the search warrant, was arrested a short time later.
According to recently-released court documents, Hoehn told officers that he came home at 2:30 p.m. August 19 and found Crews cleaning up blood in the bathroom, presenting him with the newborn and saying, “This is our baby, this is our family.”

Despite initially denying involvement, Hoehn allegedly admitted to removing garbage bags containing bloody towels and Crews’ bloody shoes from the residence and discarding them in a dumpster, WDAY also reported.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, LaFontaine-Greywind’s body was found wrapped in plastic near the Red River in Moorhead Sunday night. The Fargo woman, who was eight months pregnant, disappeared from her apartment building on August 19.
The pair’s bail has been set at $2 million each.
