JAMESTOWN, N.D. — A Jamestown man accused of killing a Somali immigrant is to stand trial this week at the Stutsman County Courthouse.
Monday, August 13, 2012
Jury selection is scheduled to begin Tuesday in the murder and criminal conspiracy trial of 34-year-old Leron Howard. He has pleaded not guilty in the April 2011 death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed, who was beaten and stabbed before his body was dumped in a ditch near Spiritwood.
A Jamestown jury in February convicted 22-year-old Janelle Cave on manslaughter and criminal conspiracy charges in the case. She is required to testify in Howard's trial as part of her sentence.
