A Hector woman appeared in Renville County court March 30 and is facing one count of second-degree murder and one count of second-degree manslaughter. 35-year-old Elizabeth Perry Lynch, of Hector made her first appearance following an incident that occurred March 26 which resulted in the death of a Hector man. That individual was identified by the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office as Anthony Tebben of Hector. Lynch called Renville County dispatch stating she had shot her boyfriend. Law enforcement officers responded to a residence located in Hector. In the residence, the initial officer discovered a black semi-automatic handgun that it appeared may have been the weapon involved. The officer also found children of various ages upstairs who were later taken into protective custody by social services. Lynch also said she did not even know if the gun was loaded. During Lynch’s first appearance before Judge Dwayne Knutsen bail was set at $500,000 with conditions and $200,000 without conditions. The second-degree murder charge, which is a felony, has a maximum sentence of 35 years in jail, while the second-degree manslaughter charge, also a felony, has a maximum sentence of 10 years, a $20,000 fine or both.
