Fatal Stabbing-Trial Begins

Fatal Stabbing-Trial Begins
Trial in fatal Bismarck stabbing canceled at last minute
The Associated Press - June 19, 2017

BISMARCK, N.D. - A trial for a man accused of fatally stabbing an acquaintance at a Bismarck apartment last year has been postponed.

A two-week trial was to begin Monday for Morris Pederson. The Bismarck Tribune reports Pederson's attorney said in court documents that new information called into question his mental health and a possible defense that hadn't yet been explored.

A new trial date wasn't immediately set.

Pederson is accused of killing Greg Comes at Patterson Place, an assisted living and low-income apartment building. Police say Pederson and Comes met at Ruth Meiers Hospitality House, a homeless shelter.

Police identified Pederson as a suspect after he walked from the apartment complex to the Burleigh County Courthouse in a blood-stained shirt and asked sheriff's deputies to help Comes, who was dead. Comes was formerly from Belle Fourche.
