Civil commitment ordered for man who murdered friend in Grand Forks 20 years agoDarrell Lee Daugherty Jr. spent more than 20 years behind bars for killing another on New Year’s Eve in 1986 in Grand Forks.
On March 26, he walked to a railroad bridge over the Red River between Fargo and Moorhead and lay down across the tracks, waiting for death to come chugging along. But a Moorhead cop interrupted his attempt. Daugherty was found on railroad tracks twice more by police since then.
