The Complainant, being duly sworn, makes complaint to the above-named Court and states that there is probable cause to believe that the
Defendant committed the following offense(s). The complainant states that the following facts establish PROBABLE CAUSE:

Complainant, Matthew Struck, is a Detective with the Hopkins Police Department. In that capacity he believes the
following establishes probable cause:

Shortly after 10:00 p.m. on July 7, 2008, Hopkins Police Officer Pilon and others were called to 151 Eighth Avenue
South, Apartment 205, Hopkins, Hennepin County, Minnesota. They responded to a 911 call placed by R.E.S.
R.E.S.’s mother, 90 year old Irene Mary Kunze, lived in that apartment.

Officers found Ms. Kunze’s lifeless body in the apartment bedroom lying in a pool of blood. Officers also saw
another pool of blood in the dining room of the apartment and bloody drag marks towards the bedroom. Pilon also
discovered a bloody knife in the kitchen sink of the apartment.

Dr. Mitchell Morey is an Assistant Hennepin County Medical Examiner. Dr. Morey reports that Ms. Kunze is dead
because of blood loss from several stab wounds.

In the aftermath of the murder, officers canvassed the apartment building. A nearby apartment dweller identified
COREY OMAR POSLEY-WELLS, the defendant herein, as visiting the building on July 7, 2008. Officer Pilon
interviewed defendant who acknowledged visiting the building on July 7, 2008, and using the neighbor’s shower.
Defendant said nothing about visiting Ms. Kunze’s apartment or any contact with her. Defendant did provide a DNA

FORM-J                                                                                                                                                   REV. 12/95
                                                                                                               Page     2

Michelle Leonard, a forensic scientist with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, reports that the lab compared the
known DNA sample of defendant with a DNA mixture sample taken from the elbow of Ms. Kunze. The sample does
not exclude defendant; 99.92 % (9992 out of 10,000) of the population would be excluded.

Defendant was arrested on July 16, 2008, after the DNA test was complete. After Miranda, defendant admitted
spotting Ms. Kunze as she left her apartment to take out the garbage on the afternoon of the 7th. Defendant felt she
was a good robbery target for money. He followed her and then lay in wait for her to return to her apartment.
Defendant followed Ms. Kunze into the apartment. Defendant attacked Ms. Kunze knocking her to the floor in an
attempt to rob her. After much consternation, defendant retrieved a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her, including
cutting her throat. Defendant dragged Ms. Kunze into the bedroom. Defendant then stole a small amount of money
from Ms. Kunze’s billfold. He also looked in various drawers for money or valuables.

Defendant also told Hopkins investigators that he was recently released from prison after serving a term for
aggravated robbery.
