KSJB radio reports (http://bit.ly/r1YKFr) that the jury trial for Leron Howard and Janelle Cave is scheduled for Feb. 6-17 in Stutsman County District Court.

The 34-year-old Howard and 22-year-old Cave pleaded not guilty to all charges in July. They are being held in the Stutsman County Corrections Center, each on $450,000 bond.

Howard and Cave are accused of murder and criminal conspiracy in the death of Abdi Ali Ahmed.

Ahmed's body was found in a ditch on April 30 near Spiritwood. Authorities say he had been stabbed and suffered blunt force trauma.
