Devers teen murdered: We want to forewarn our readers they may find some disturbing details in this news report. Children and some adults may not want to read this report. A teenager formerly of Devers, 19 year old Dystynee Avery, has been murdered in Minnesota. Now three suspects have been charged for their alleged involvement in the local woman’s death. According to a Moorhead Minnesota Newspaper,  Charges  were filed Thursday, April 23, in Clay County, Minnesota District Court against Andrea Catherine Payne, age 26, and David Marvin Erno-22, both of Moorhead. Payne and Erno each face a second-degree accomplice to murder charge. That carries a maximum punishment of 20-years in prison. Court documents allege Avery’s roommate, 27-year-old Ethan Martin Broad, is solely responsible for her death but documents detail how Payne and Erno failed to report the girl’s death on or about, April 4 at the apartment where Broad and Avery lived in Minnesota. Ethan Broad faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted of second-degree murder. The Minnesota newspaper report said Payne, Erno and Broad are still in custody in the Clay County Minnesota jail. 27-year old Ethan Broad is accused of the actual murder is being held on a $1 million bond.  Andrea Payne and David Erno would need $500,000 each for their freedom. Avery moved to Moorhead from Devers – here in southeast Liberty Co.,  about a year and a half ago, and was said to be living with Broad, off and on, during her time in Moorhead Minnesota. Investigators found what they believe to be Dystynee Avery's dismembered remains at the Clay County landfill after a two-day search. Those who knew her said she lived with her parents in Devers briefly until about 18 months ago. ************************************************
