JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man convicted of murdering an 18-year-old Somali immigrant will be sentenced in November.

KQDJ reports that the sentencing hearing for 35-year-old Leron Howard has been scheduled for Nov. 14 at Southeast District Court.

A jury last week found Howard guilty of murder and criminal conspiracy in the April 2011 death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed. Howard faces up to life in prison without parole.

Another person was sentenced to 11 years in prison for manslaughter and criminal conspiracy in the case.
