BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ A federal judge is allowing a woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to ride with her mother to a Fargo halfway house.
Twenty-two-year-old Alisha Crow Ghost was charged last week with second-degree murder for the death of her boyfriend, Cole Harrison, of Cannon Ball. Authorities say Crow Dog stabbed Harrison after a night of drinking and arguing.
Judge Charles Miller ordered Crow Ghost be held at a Fargo halfway house until the trial and said her mother could drive her so she wouldn't have to wait until next week.
Prosecutors had wanted Crow Dog to remain in jail, but her lawyer argued that her criminal history was minimal.
