A New Town man is accused in the stabbing death of a man on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A New Town man is accused in the stabbing death of a man on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. Twenty-six-year-old Donovan Duchaine is charged with second-degree murder and assault with a dangerous weapon for the death of 29-year-old David Rios, also of New Town. Authorities say Rios was stabbed outside a New Town residence on May 25. Duchaine has not entered a plea. His arraignment has not been scheduled. No further details were available.


     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Attorneys for a man sentenced to life in prison for fatally beating a woman in Bismarck are arguing that some evidence should have been suppressed during his trial.  Morris Brickle-Hicks is appealing his murder conviction before the North Dakota Supreme Court. A jury convicted him last fall of killing 40-year-old Misty Coffelt in April 2016 behind a farm goods store. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
     The Bismarck Tribune reports Brickle-Hicks' attorney, James Loraas, says incriminating statements and clothing evidence should have been suppressed because his client didn't voluntarily waive his Miranda rights in a police interview. Loraas has asked the high court to vacate Brickle-Hicks' conviction or remand for a new trial. The court did not immediately rule.


     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A judge has dismissed Montana-Dakota Utilities' eminent domain proceeding for a proposed natural gas pipeline west of Minot. The Minot Daily News reports that North Central District Judge Gary Lee ruled that harm to the private landowner outweighed any public benefits from the pipeline.
     MDU wants to build the 3,000-foot-long pipeline to service a BNSF Railway facility. The utility obtained the necessary permits and approvals from state and federal agencies but had to resort to the eminent domain process to cross the private land. The judge ruled the pipeline would be a convenience and not a necessity. MDU officials had no immediate comment, saying they're still evaluating the decision.
     Landowner attorney Lynn Boughey called the decision a "huge case for property rights, and the little guy."


     EAST FAIRVIEW, N.D. (AP) - A suspicious device found during a traffic stop in McKenzie County prompted the shutdown of a state highway for several hours. The sheriff's office says a deputy who stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation near East Fairview about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday found the device. Authorities didn't specify what it was. The sheriff's office called in the Minot Police Department's bomb squad, which detonated the device. State Highway 58 was shut down and traffic detoured until about 10:15 p.m. There was no immediate word on whether any arrests were made.


     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is establishing a new field division based in Omaha that will include Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. In a news conference today in Omaha, DEA Acting Administrator Robert Patterson said the new division will open in July. It is the agency's 23rd division office in the United States. Patterson says the move was prompted in part by the nation's growing opioid crisis. In April, authorities seized a record 118 pounds of the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl during a traffic stop.
     The Omaha division will be led by Matthew Barden, who previously served as the Associate Special Agent in Charge of the St. Louis Division. Barden says the new division will "produce more effective investigations on methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl and prescription opioid trafficking."
