Murder charges filed against husband, wife in New Brighton shooting


Plastic deer and lawn ornaments decorated the victims' property. The victims allegedly had a deer feeder in their yard, and the animals passed through Zumberge's backyard from a wooded area near the Rice Creek Trail walking path.

The home on the 2500 block of Knollwood Drive near Eastman Drive in New Brighton was the scene of a shooting on May 5 that killed one man and injured a woman. The victims were allegedly embroiled in a dispute with their neighbor across the street, Neal Zumberge, 57, about feeding wild deer that would occasionally cross his backyard to reach a feeder in the victims' yard.

From outside the house, gunshot holes can be seen in the aluminum front storm door and siding. Shattered glass covers the front step, and lights leading up the sidewalk to the door were strewn about near the area where police found Todd Stevens, 46. Interior photos reveal myriad bullet holes.

On Wednesday, May 7, the Ramsey County attorney's office charged Neal Zumberge with one count of second-degree murder, which has a maximum sentence of 40 years, and one count of second-degree attempted murder, which has a maximum sentence of 20 years. His wife, Paula Zumberge, 50, was charged the next day with aiding and abetting those crimes, and faces the same sentencing guidelines.
In a statement, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi called the shooting "senseless and tragic," adding that the investigation is currently ongoing.
