     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Trial has been delayed until next year for a man accused in a shooting in Williston last year that left two men dead. Thirty-three-year-old Lamar Putney faces two murder charges in the May 2016 slayings of 24-year-old Diandre Lott and 23-year-old Donzell Washington at an apartment complex. The victims who had come to the oil patch from Ohio died of multiple gunshot wounds.
 
     Putney pleaded not guilty last November and was to stand trial this month. A 10-day trial is now scheduled to begin next Jan. 29. Putney could face life in prison without parole if convicted.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum says a judge's ruling to halt construction on a Red River diversion project around the Fargo-Moorhead area should convince both sides to reach a settlement. Burgum tells KFGO radio that delays to the $2.2 billion project add $60 million a year to the price tag and believes that should get everyone to the table to find a solution.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The attorney for McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger is asking a judge to throw out a criminal charge against his client.

Defense attorney Tom Dickson says the case has been investigated at "an unprecedented level."

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff on Monday, and encouraged North Dakota residents to do the same, in remembrance of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    The governor's directive is in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Donald Trump, who also requested that Americans observe a moment of silence at 7:46 a.m. Central Daylight Time on Monday to honor the nearly 3,000 victims of the attacks.

    "We will always remember the tragedy of Sept. 11 and the heroism of those who selflessly risked their own lives to save others," Burgum said. "The spirit of sacrifice demonstrated on that day endures in our first responders and military members who serve those in need and protect our nation."

    The North Dakota 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday at the State Capitol in Bismarck, as a way to honor and remember the New York Fire Department firefighters who gave their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. A 9/11 Memorial Wall will be on display from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in conjunction with the Stair Climb.
