Jamestown, ND (WDAY TV) -- The trial is underway for a Jamestown man accused of murdering a Somali immigrant.

Lawyers are in the process of picking a jury to hear the case of 34 year-old Leron Howard. He has pleaded not guilty in the April 2011 death of 18 year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed. Ahmed was beaten and stabbed before he was dumped in a ditch near Spiritwood.

An accomplice, 22 year-old Janelle Cave, has already been convicted of manslaughter. She is expected to testify against Howard.
