Chisholm man found guilty 30 years after Nancy Daugherty’s murder

In the murder case of Nancy Daugherty, a Chisholm man has been found guilty. Michael Allen Carbo, Jr., 54, is being held responsible for the 1986 cold case.

Carbo was indicted by a grand jury with two counts of First-Degree Murder, while Committing Criminal sexual Conduct in the First Degree. Each count carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Daugherty’s murder prompted one of the most exhaustive investigations in St. Louis County, undertaken by current and retired employees of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the Chisholm Police Department, the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from numerous other agencies.

The St. Louis County Attorney, Kim Maki, says the jury’s verdicts affirmed what agencies discovered in their dogged investigation; that Michael Allen Carbo, Jr. raped and murdered Nancy Daugherty in the early morning hours of July 16, 1986.

The County Attorney’s Office says they are pleased with the courage and commitment to justice shown by the jury, despite the age of the case. St. Louis County is also expressing its deepest condolences to the family of Ms. Daugherty for their loss.

Carbo’s sentencing is scheduled on September 30th at 2:00 p.m.
