Dakota County Attorney’s Office

The Dakota County Attorney’s office has charged four people related to the disappearance of Samantha and Gianna Rucki: Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, Dede (Deirdre) Evavold, Douglas Dahlen and his wife, Gina Dahlen.

In a press release announces criminal charges, Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said “concealing children and keeping them from a parent for over two and half years in violation of a court order is unconscionable.”

The criminal trials will be held at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota.
