Police say she was killed by blunt force.

Lana Jane Pelletier, 42, is charged with second-degree murder. John Charles Kisil, 50, is charged with being an accessory after the fact. 

Police say Pelletier was also known as Lana Stalker. Both Pelletier and Kisil are in custody. 

Staff Sgt. Shawna Grimes said the victim knew the accused.

She said the shopping cart was used to move Berg's body. Grimes can't reveal where the homicide occurred because the investigation is still underway. 

Police say they are still looking for more information for their investigation and are urging people to come forward.
