Trial is underway for a Minot woman accused of killing a man a year ago......

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Trial is underway for a Minot woman accused of killing a man a year ago. Thirty-nine-year-old Kommika Gregory is accused of shooting to death 58-year-old Ronald Thompson on Nov. 16, 2017, at a Minot residence. She faces a murder charge that could land her in prison for life without parole if she's convicted.
 
     Police have said Thompson tried to intervene in a dispute between Gregory and her ex-boyfriend. Prosecutors allege Gregory shot Thompson three times. Gregory's attorney maintains she acted in self-defense. Prosecutors say Gregory's ex-boyfriend died over the summer. He was the only other witness in the case but made statements to police earlier. The trial is scheduled to run through the rest of the week.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Trial has been scheduled for a Bismarck addiction counselor who's accused of hindering police in a methadone patient's arrest. Kiki Schatz faces a misdemeanor charge after refusing to allow police entry into a private opioid treatment clinic in June. Officers were trying to arrest a man for allegedly violating a protection order. Schatz maintained that she's obligated under federal law to protect patients' confidentiality rights. The Bismarck Tribune reports a jury trial has been scheduled for Oct. 17 in state district court.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The former general manager of an events center in Fargo has been sentenced to community service and ordered to pay restitution for embezzling from the business.
 
     Richard Pallay had earlier pleaded guilty to theft for stealing nearly $16,000 from Sanctuary Events Center developed by Gov. Doug Burgum's Kilbourne Group. KFGO says Pallay has paid back about $10,000 and was ordered to pay another $5,900. He must also perform 150 hours of community service. Pallay told investigators he spent the money on gambling and entertainment.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A business that grew from a mom and pop watermelon stand in the 1940s into a staple produce market in the Bismarck-Mandan area is shutting down after 70 years. The Bismarck Tribune reports that Royse's Twin City Produce is closing its doors on Oct. 15.
 
     Delores Royse Castle took over the produce stand operations from her parents 25 years ago. She says shuttering the business is difficult because it was her parents' legacy. Royse Castle says many of their customers have been with them for years.
 
     Mandan Business Development Director Ellen Huber calls Royse's Produce one of the community's pioneering businesses and a destination for fresh fruit and vegetables. Huber says city officials would've loved to see a succession plan to keep the business in operation.

     LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Backers of broad marijuana legalization are looking to break through a geographic barrier in November and get their first foothold in the Midwest after a string of election victories in northeastern and western states.

    Michigan and North Dakota will decide now if the drug should be legal for any adult 21 and older. They would become the 10th and 11th states to legalize so-called recreational marijuana since 2012.

    Meantime, Missouri and Utah will weigh medical marijuana - which is permitted in 31 states. Even if Utah's initiative is defeated, a compromise reached between advocates and opponents including the Mormon Church will have the legislature legalize medical marijuana.
