Woman’s death ruled homicide; boyfriend charged with murder

FORT MOHAVE – Mohave County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) detectives arrested Daniel Joseph Campbell, 55, of Rochester, MN, for second degree murder per domestic violence. On Wednesday, Nov. 20, at about 6 p.m., deputies responded to Boundary Cone Rd. and Hwy. 95 in Fort Mohave for a welfare check.

An out-of-state reporting party advised that she had received a call from her friend’s boyfriend, telling her that her friend had overdosed on illegal drugs and that the victim was not breathing. Deputies located a vehicle at the side of the road and found the victim, Amy Johanna Berg, 40, of Rochester, MN, was unresponsive. Berg was unable to be revived and was declared deceased at the scene.

According to an MCSO press release, Campbell, Berg’s boyfriend, advised deputies that he and Berg were travelling across the country in their vehicle and had stayed at a hotel in Kingman the night prior. Campbell advised that Berg had purchased illegal drugs from an unknown subject and while driving in the area of Boundary Cone and Highway 95, Berg claimed she was not feeling well and stopped the vehicle. Campbell claimed Berg began overdosing and he attempted to begin CPR on her.

On Thursday, Nov. 21, the Mohave County Medical Examiner advised he had observed blunt force trauma to the skull and signs of strangulation to the neck of the victim during the autopsy, and ruled Berg’s death a homicide.

Campbell was found at a hotel in the 1600 block of Highway 95 in Bullhead City and was arrested without incident.
