St. Louis Park

January 3, 2023

Logan Gregory Barham, 22, was stabbed and killed on January 3, in his St. Louis Park apartment. His wife, Alexis Poole, 23, is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Logan and Poole were arguing in their apartment when he tried to pick her up and move her so he could leave the apartment. Poole then stabbed Logan in the chest, and admitted that he had not threatened her in any way prior to the stabbing. In 2020, police were called to the apartment because Poole was holding a knife and threatening to hurt herself and others. The couple were in the process of being evicted and were set to be removed from their home on January 4, the day after the stabbing.
