GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man accused of killing two children on the Spirit Lake Nation is going on trial in federal court.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that Valentino "Tino" Bagola's trial starts Tuesday in Fargo.

Bagola is charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the death of 9-year-old Destiny Shaw and her 6-year-old brother, Travis DuBois Jr. Their mother found their bodies on May 21, 2011, beneath a mattress at the home she had once shared with the sibling's father.

The father, Travis DuBois Sr., pleaded guilty to public intoxication and reckless endangerment, but he was never charged in the children's deaths. He is listed as a witness against Bagola.
