Judge Brett Linneweber sentenced Nina Mel Cochran to 75 years in the custody of the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.

Cochran will remain at the Montana State Hospital in Warm Springs, where she has been receiving mental health treatment.

She was charged in December 2022 for the beating and stabbing death of 64-year-old Douglas Merrill Nielsen inside his residence.

Police arrested Cochran after a Highway Patrol officer stopped her for driving recklessly on Interstate 90.

Cochran told an officer that Douglas Merrill Nielsen was «dead in his house.»

She also stated that she had killed him as part of a «satanic initiation,» according to KPAX.

Montana police found Nielsen’s body in the house on December 6.

Prosecutors acknowledged that Cochran has a mental illness that prevented her from understanding the criminality of her actions.
