A trial date has been set for a Missouri man accused of stabbing a Perham woman seven times outside a hotel. 19 year old James Manning will go on trial January 24th in Ottertail County.
Police say he and 26 year old Robert McCane of Missouri beat and kicked and stabbed the woman. She needed surgery for her wounds. The 3 met at a bar, and the woman gave them a ride to a motel.
The men had conflicting stories about what happened and who was responsible. Manning says he paid the women for sex, but says he got angry because it wasn't worth it. A trial date has not yet been set for McCane.
