JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — Prosecutors charging a Jamestown woman with murder in the death of a Somali immigrant have presented an audio recording of an interview she gave to detectives.

Twenty-two-year-old Janelle Cave is charged with murder and criminal conspiracy in the death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed. His body was found in a ditch near Spiritwood on April 30, 2011. Authorities say he was beaten and stabbed. Thirty-four-year-old Leron Howard has pleaded not guilty to the same charges.

The Jamestown Sun reports (http://bit.ly/wm8fun) that the audio played in court during Cave's trial is from an interview that took place on July 8, 2011. Cave requested the interview with detectives.

In the recording, Cave says Ahmed came home with her and Howard. Ahmed was allegedly knocked unconscious as he was escorted from the home.
