Authorities have released the name of a Williston man killed in a wreck on an icy Highway 85...
     ARNEGARD, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a Williston man killed in a wreck on an icy Highway 85 between Williston and Watford City.  The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 35-year-old Franklin Mundo left Arnegard and was heading east Sunday evening when he lost control on the icy road due to rain, snow and blowing snow.
 
     The car slid sideways into westbound traffic and was struck by an extended cab pickup struck heading west. Mundo was killed.  The pickup truck driver, Lyle Sasse, of Vancouver, Wash., suffered minor injuries but was not hospitalized.

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A Bowman woman accused of allowing her newborn baby to drown in a toilet has formally pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.  KXMB-TV reports Judge William Herauf accepted 42-year-old Stephanie Lindstrom's guilty plea Tuesday to negligent homicide, instead of murder.
 
     Bowman County prosecutor Andrew Weiss says medical information shows she was most likely unconscious when the baby died and he wouldn't be able to prove her mental state warranted a murder charge.  Weiss says medical experts, legal experts and Bowman police investigators agree with the less-serious charge.
 
     That dropped the maximum punishment from life in prison to five years in jail and a $5,000 fine.  The state has 90 days to file a pre-sentence investigation before Lindstrom will be sentenced.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man has pleaded guilty to illegal weapons charges. Gary Hinton is charged in federal court with possession of firearms by a convicted felon. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Authorities say Hinton was found in January 2013 to be in possession of three pistols and seven brands of ammunition.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's oil boom has led to a record population, the nation's lowest unemployment rate and thousands of more jobs than takers. But it's also led to more crime and increasing overcrowding of its prisons and jails. A state commission comprised of lawmakers, judges, lawyers and law enforcement officials is considering ways to free up lockup space while not putting the public at risk.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A nonprofit that operates five health centers in central and northern North Dakota to serve the needy has opened a sixth facility in Minot. The federally supported Northland Community Health Center clinics offer medical, dental and behavioral health services to those in need regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. The Minot facility opened Feb. 12, joining centers in Rolla, Rolette, Bowbells, McClusky and Turtle Lake.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The leader of the Standing Rock Sioux says a propane crisis on the Dakotas reservation is easing due to warmer weather and a drop in the price of the fuel. Chairman Dave Archambault says the tribe has ensured that everyone in need of propane has received some. As many as 5,000 homes on the reservation rely on propane.

     FORT YATES, N.D. (AP) - An effort to raise $50,000 to fund a pilot project to outfit 20 Standing Rock Reservation homes with heat stoves that burn pellets made from natural materials is nearing its goal.  More than 1,000 people have contributed more than $44,000 to "Heating the Rez," promoted via www.indiegogo.com
 
     Attorney and American Indian activist Chase Iron Eyes is spearheading the effort. He says donations from $5 to $1,000 have arrived from a dozen different countries -- as far as Australia and Sweden.
 
     The ultimate goal of the effort is to move the reservation away from its reliance on propane, which is pricey now because of a nationwide shortage. As many as 5,000 homes on the reservation that straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border rely on propane for heat.
