Man Admits To Killing His Mom
A St. Cloud man admitted in court Friday to killing his mother last year, the Stearns County Attorney’s Office said.
Chad Matthew Pulju, 40, pleaded guilty to intentional murder in the second degree for his mother’s Aug. 23, 2012, stabbing death.
According to police, they found Pulju’s mother covered in blood but alive in a home, on that day. Standing behind her was her son, with blood on his shirt. Police also found a blood-covered folding knife under Pulju’s left leg.
Pulju’s mother was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital, where she died. An autopsy showed she had multiple stab wounds on her face and neck.
Pulju is currently in the Stearns County Jail. A sentencing date has yet to be set.
