CREWS PLEADS GUILTY
Three guilty pleas have drastically changed the momentum of the case of murdered Fargo mother-to-be, Savanna Lafontaine-Greywind.
38-year-old Brooke Crews pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping, and providing false information to police.
The maximum penalties of the charges are life in prison without parole.
Crews and her boyfriend, William Hoehn, were arrested in August after police found Crews with 22-year-old Savanna Greywind's newborn baby in the apartment she was last seen.
Crews' defense attorney, says the decision to change pleas, was her decision, based on the facts of the case, and to argue for something less than life without parole.
Crews will be sentenced January 16th.
Hoehn who has pleaded not guilty will go to trial in March.
GRAND FORKS DEATH
Police say what was first reported as a body hanging from a tree in Grand Forks was not true.
They say a woman was actually found dead on the ground near a sidewalk in the 700 Block of S. 25th St.
That's right off Demers and South Columbia Road.
Authorities aren't sure how the information was so wrong.
The person has been identified as 75-year-old Bisnu Kami from Grand Forks.
Police have not confirmed if the woman died by suicide.
MOORHEAD ZONING PROBLEMS
A quirk in Moorhead's zoning rules has dozens of neighbors upset.
Korsmo Funeral Services on 8th St. in Moorhead recently tore down a home it owned to create a new parking lot.
The lot it's building on is zoned as residential.
Despite zoning designations, businesses are allowed to build parking lots on almost any property in Moorhead.
Several neighbors took to the city council to ask members to consider changing the zoning ordinances.
The council said it will look at the issue at a planning commission meeting.
