A Minot man convicted of killing his ex-wife by stabbing her 44 times in the neck, face and chest is appealing a judge's order...

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man convicted of killing his ex-wife by stabbing her 44 times in the neck, face and chest is appealing a judge's order that forbids him from having contact with their two children while they're still minors. Richie Wilder Jr. was convicted last December of murder in the November 2015 death of 30-year-old Angila Wilder. He was sentenced in May to life in prison.
 
     Judge Gary Lee originally ordered a lifetime ban on contact between Wilder and his daughter and son. He amended the order this month to allow the children to make up their own minds about contact with their father when they become adults. The Minot Daily News reports that Wilder is appealing to the North Dakota Supreme Court. He's also appealing his conviction.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State health officials say fewer pregnant women are smoking in North Dakota. The Department of Health's birth certificate records show the state had a pregnancy smoking rate of 11.6 percent in 2016. That's down from 13.8 percent in the year prior. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the national smoking rate for pregnant women is 8.4 percent. Health officials also say more than a quarter of the North Dakota women who say they smoked in the first trimester of pregnancy quit by the third trimester.  
 
     State child health nurse consultant Amy Burke says women who smoke while pregnant can increase their risk of health complications with the pregnancy, premature birth, low-birth weight and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Two property owners in Bismarck whose backyards are slipping into a creek have been given more time to accept or decline help from the park board in stabilizing the slope. The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Bismarck Park Board approved a 20-day extension last week for the homeowners whose properties are slipping into Hay Creek.
 
     Negotiations are ongoing between the board and property owners Jim Hopfauf and David Wolf. The board is asking the homeowners to pay more than $81,000 for the stabilization project. The residents and city officials still disagree on who or what is responsible for the problem, which is also affecting a public walking trail now deemed unsafe. The board won't continue planning or engineering a solution for the slope until Hopfauf and Wolf make their decisions.
