On This Date in Minnesota History: February 10

February 10, 1971 – The Minnesota Supreme Court once again denied T. Eugene Thompson’s attempts to collect the more than $1 million in death benefits carried by his wife Carol, upholding their previous ruling.  Thompson was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to life-imprisonment in Stillwater Prison in 1963.
