A Kenmare woman whose 13-year-old son weighed just 21 pounds when he died will stand trial for murder....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Kenmare woman whose 13-year-old son weighed just 21 pounds when he died will stand trial for murder. Jessica Jensen's attorney argued in court Thursday that the boy wasn't starved to death and died of an untreated disease. But the judge has ruled that the state has met the burden of proof to try the 35-year-old woman.

     A detective testified Thursday that Jensen's mother believed Jensen did not want her son. The detective said Jensen told him she had previously locked her son in a room in her home. The room had boarded up windows, was filled with trash and smelled like urine and feces.
 
     A pre-trial conference is set for September.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - One university in North Dakota is among dozens across the country facing a federal investigation for the way they handle sexual abuse allegations by their students. Minot State is on a list of 55 schools released by the Education Department. The federal agency says a school's appearance on the list does not mean that it has violated the law. Minot State says it is cooperating with the probe.

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A Singapore-based investment company wants to build a $300 million development in the growing city of Dickinson in North Dakota's oil patch.  The Bismarck Tribune reports that Barons Group of Companies wants to build a 280-acre residential and retail development in Dickinson next year. The development would be called Barons Vista.  Barons Vista would include a four-star hotel with a spa as well as condominiums, restaurants and shops.
 
     Barons Group of Companies is currently building a hotel called Barons Lodge in Killdeer, 35 miles north of Dickinson.  Dickinson Community Development Director Ed Courton says the plans of the project are still in their early stages.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Anglers are heading to muddy riverbanks in northwest North Dakota as this year's paddlefish season officially opens. Theoretically, the season runs through the end of May, but with a harvest cap of 1,000 fish the season is often much shorter.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Plans have been unveiled for a new high school in Williston.  The Williston Herald reports JLG Architects and Williston Public School District No. 1 laid out the plans to the public on Tuesday.  The plans call for a $56.5 million high school to be built on a 35-acre patch of land northwest of town.  Ted Rozeboom, a consultant working with JLG, says the current high school is on a plot of just four or five acres.
 
     Williston's rapid population growth in recent years as a result of the oil boom has pushed local schools beyond their capacities. Area schools have been forced to use portable classrooms to accommodate students.  A vote for a $34 million bond to help finance the new school will be held on June 10.
