JAMESTOWN(NewsDakota.com) – The Stutsman County Courthouse will have increased security for the next two weeks, starting Tuesday.
Stutsman County sheriff Chad Kaiser says security will be beefed up because of a murder trial scheduled to begin Tuesday with jury selection.
Kaiser says people with purse or bags should leave them in their vehicle if possible.
34-year-old Leron Howard of Jamestown is on trial for murder and criminal conspiracy in the April 2011 death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed. A Jamestown jury in February convicted Janelle Cave on manslaughter and criminal conspiracy charges in the case. She is required to testify in Howard’s trial as part of her sentence.
The same security measures were in place during Cave’s trial. Howard’s trial is scheduled to last until Aug. 24.
