BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A woman accused of stabbing to death her boyfriend on the Standing Rock Reservation last fall has been returned to custody after being kicked out of a Fargo halfway house.

Twenty-two-year-old Alisha Crow Ghost is charged with murder in the Nov. 10, 2012, death of Cole Harrison, of Cannon Ball. Authorities allege she stabbed Harrison after a night of drinking and arguing. She has pleaded not guilty and is to stand trial in federal court in late July.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles Miller earlier allowed Crow Ghost to be held at the halfway house pending trial. The Bismarck Tribune reports Miller has now ordered her held in custody pending trial because she was terminated from the halfway house program after a shoplifting conviction and violations of halfway house policies.
