WHEATON, Minn. (AP) — A fishing outing turned deadly for a western Minnesota man.

The body of 50-year-old Charles Krauth was recovered from Mud Lake, just west of Wheaton in Traverse County. Sheriff's deputies found the man's dog and four-wheeler near the spot where he broke through the ice Sunday. Family members became concerned when he failed to return from ice fishing.
