Key Evidence Not Thrown Out In Murder Trial of a North Dakota Man

A federal judge refuses to throw out key evidence in the upcoming trial of a Fort Berthold Reservation man accused of killing with his bare hands.

Marcel Chase is accused of killing a man during a meth–fueled fight in December 2014.

Chase’s attorney says his client’s rights were violated by gathering evidence without a warrant and questioning him without an attorney present.

Chase is scheduled for trial to face second–degree murder charges late next month.
