Hector Woman Charged in Boyfriend’s Death


A Hector woman has been charged following an incident early Thursday (March 26), that resulted in the death of a Hector man.

According to a press release from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, 35-year-old Elizabeth Perry Lynch is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. She is currently in custody at the Renville County Jail.

The victim is identified as Anthony Tebben.

According to the criminal complaint, Lynch called Renville County law enforcement dispatch at about 1:00 A.M. Thursday and said that she shot her boyfriend who was later identified as Tebben.

Hector Police Officer Doug Best was reportedly the first law enforcement agent on the scene. Shortly after arriving, the criminal complaint says that Lynch walked out of the residence with her right hand and wrist covered in blood. Lynch is reported to have acknowledged Best’s presence and said: “Hey Best, I shot him.”

Tebben was still alive and was taken to HCMC, where he later died.

Lynch is scheduled to appear in court today (Monday).
