Mandan police say a man found dead in his mobile home Monday died of multiple gunshot wounds....
     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Mandan police say a man found dead in his mobile home Monday died of multiple gunshot wounds.  Authorities also say three guns are missing from the home of 28-year-old Alex Lansdon, including an AR-15 rifle and two handguns. They're asking members of the public to report any guns or clothing they find in the area.
 
     Deputy Police Chief Paul Leingang says there are no suspects but he does not believe the general public is at risk. He says Lansdon's death does not appear to be a random killing.  Lansdon was originally from California but had been living in Mandan for about two years, working as a carpenter.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $2 million for a man accused in a Williston-area homicide.  Forty-eight-year-old Tovias Carrillo is accused in the death of 51-year-old Juan Palacios, whose body was found Tuesday beneath a mattress along U.S. Highway 1804 about 13 miles east of Williston.
 
     Carrillo is charged with murder and also two counts of terrorizing, for allegedly threatening people on Dec. 9 and Jan 24. Court documents don't list an attorney for him, nor do they give an age or hometown.
 
     The Williston Herald reports that no new details of the case emerged during Thursday's bond hearing.  Carrillo is due back in court on Feb. 21 for a preliminary hearing on the charges, which could put him in prison for life if he's convicted.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man accused in a double homicide in Fargo last November has pleaded guilty.  KFGO radio reports that David Stevens admitted today to stabbing his former girlfriend, 23-year-old Sarah Wickenheiser, and another man, 30-year-old Ward Berg, of Moorhead, Minn., in Wickenheiser's north Fargo apartment.
 
     Stevens' wife told police the pair drove from Brookings, S.D., to Fargo because Stevens wanted to pick up clothing from the apartment. David Stevens later told authorities he had brought a knife for protection.  Stevens had attempted to plead guilty earlier, but a judge rejected the plea until a mental evaluation was completed. The murder charges against him carry a maximum punishment of life in prison without parole.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on a child pornography charge.  Fifty-nine-year-old Steven Paul pleaded guilty in October to receipt of materials involving the sexual exploitation of minors.  Paul was previously convicted for possession of child pornography and was on probation with the state of North Dakota.
 
     Authorities say Paul admitted in an interview with probation officers in 2012 that he used the Internet to download child pornography.  U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Paul to serve 15 years in federal prison, the mandatory minimum sentence, to be followed by 20 years of supervised release.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota is getting more federal money to help low-income people heat their homes.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has released another $439 million nationwide for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, better known as LIHEAP. North Dakota is getting $3.4 million in the latest allocation, bringing the state's total award for the heating season up to $25.7 million. That compares with $23.7 million last winter.
 
     Carol Cartledge is director of North Dakota's Economic Assistance Policy Division. She says federal officials often look at additional LIHEAP appropriations midwinter. She says the money will be enough to meet the needs of the 10,000 or so North Dakotans who have applied for help.  U.S. Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp issued statements praising the decision by HHS.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The federal government has released more money for a program that helps low-income people heat their homes, and nearly $1.3 million is earmarked for American Indian tribes in the Dakotas.  But the leader of the Standing Rock Sioux says the additional money might not be enough to deal with a propane crisis on that reservation.
 
     Chairman Dave Archambault II says a tribal program that helps low-income people pay for heat has only $1.5 million this winter, down from $2.5 million last winter because of federal budget cuts. He doesn't immediately know how much the tribe will get from the latest allocation but says it won't be enough to bring the program up to normal funding.  About 5,000 homes on the reservation rely on propane, which is in short supply nationwide.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Land Board has awarded about $5 million in state grants to law enforcement agencies in North Dakota's oil-production region.   Officials say the money will support sheriffs, police departments, prosecutors and regional law enforcement task forces. The state funding will also support domestic violence assistance programs, family crisis assistance and child advocacy.
 
     The Land Board will award a total of $240 million in impact grants through 2015 to counties experiencing rapid growth from the state's oil boom.  The Land Board is headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is offering 5,880 wild turkey licenses for the spring hunting season, a decrease of 50 from last year. Officials say the drop is due to poor production.
 
     Two of the 22 hunting units have slightly more spring licenses than in 2013, while 16 remain the same. Unit 21 is closed again this year due to a lack of turkeys in the unit that encompasses most of Hettinger and Adams counties.
 
     License application forms will be available by Saturday at most license vendors, county auditors and Game and Fish offices.  The deadline for applying is Feb. 12.  Spring turkey licenses are available only to North Dakota residents. The season opens April 12 and continues through May 18.
