A Minnesota man accused of sending hundreds, possibly thousands, of messages to his ex-girlfriend in La Crosse is being charged with felony stalking.

Nathan Kehret of Austin, Minn., turned himself in to La Crosse police this week.

The victim claims that the 27-year-old Kehret repeatedly phones or messages her, sometimes making threats to take away her dog. She told police that she thought about harming herself because of the harassing messages.

The messages reportedly began after Kehret was released from jail earlier this month.
