Sentencing has been set for a man convicted in the death of a Fargo woman whose baby was cut from her womb.....

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Sentencing has been set for a man convicted in the death of a Fargo woman whose baby was cut from her womb. William Hoehn pleaded guilty last month to conspiring to commit kidnapping and lying to police in the August 2017 death of Savanna Greywind, of Fargo. A jury then acquitted Hoehn of conspiracy to commit murder.
 
     Hoehn's ex-girlfriend, Brooke Crews, pleaded guilty in Greywind's death and is serving life in prison. She testified against Hoehn at last month's trial. Hoehn admitted helping to cover up the crime, but said he knew nothing of the murder plot.
 
     Judge Tom Olson scheduled sentencing for 11 a.m. on Oct. 29. Hoehn faces maximum penalties of 20 years in prison on the kidnapping charge and one year for lying to authorities.

     STANTON, N.D. (AP) - Hundreds of mail-in ballots in Mercer County will have to be recast following a logistical error. County Auditor Shana Brost tells The Bismarck Tribune that an independent candidate for U.S. House was inadvertently left off the ballots. About 800 people had already sent in their votes before the error was discovered Friday. Nearly 8,000 ballots are being reprinted. Brost says the new ballots are expected to be mailed by late in the week.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's budget office says 219 employees in state government have been approved for voluntary buyouts. The state Office of Management and Budget says the voluntary buyouts were selected from a list of 298 applicants. Budget director Joe Morrissette announced the buyout program in June.
 
     The options for the buyouts include a lump-sum payout of three months' salary. Budget writers say the severance to be paid from the buyouts totals $7.3 million. The buyout program comes after Republican Gov. Doug Burgum told state agencies in April to identify spending cuts for the next two-year budget.
 
     Last year, about 160 employees from cabinet-level agencies in state government were approved for voluntary buyouts, at a cost of about $3 million.

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A few hunting licenses are still available as North Dakota's deer season nears. The state Game and Fish Department says more than 90 white-tailed doe licenses remain in units 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. The licenses are available only to hunters who haven't already received a lottery or landowner license, and they're only available online. They're valid only during the regular deer gun season, Nov. 9-25. Hunters are required to buy a general game and habitat license before receiving a deer license.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Chief Justice John Roberts has stressed the need for the judicial branch to remain independent from the "political branches" of government. Speaking Tuesday at the University of Minnesota, Roberts took note of the contentious debate over the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh this month. He says there have been times when the Supreme Court erred greatly, but that when it did so, it was because the court yielded to political pressures.
 
     Roberts says it's important that the court maintain its tradition of collegiality. He says the justices always take a moment to shake hands before going onto the bench to hear a case or walking into the conference room to discuss it. He says it's a reminder that they don't serve a party but one nation.
