FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - 29-year-old Cody Plumlee has been found not guilty to several charges he was facing, which include Murder, Aggravated Assault-Domestic Violence, Burglary and Reckless Endangerment.

In December of 2020, Fargo Police were called to a disturbance at 702 26th St. N. Officers say Plumlee and his girlfriend, Kirsten Knaus got into a fight over keys to a vehicle they both used. A witness told police that Plumlee ultimately shoved Knaus down a flight of stairs, which knocked her unconscious. Knaus later passed away after being pulled off of life-support.

Court documents say that Plumlee admitted to police that he pushed Knaus because she hit him in the forehead with a frying pan before she fell.

Plumlee was found guilty to three charges against him, which are Theft of Property, False Information to Law Enforcement and Reckless Driving.
