A 20-year-old man is on trial this week in Bismarck for the murder of a man who had recently moved to the area from South Dakota.
Joshua Clark is facing a murder conspiracy charge in the May 2013 death of 18-year-old John Swain. Swain had recently moved from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to Bismarck.
Authorities allege Clark and Theo Crowe lured Swain into a Bismarck home, hit him with a hammer, cut off his legs and hid his body. Swain's body was found in June 2013 at the home of Crowe's grandmother in Poplar, Montana.
Clark had previously sought to have his case dismissed. Judge Bruce Haskell denied the request but moved Clark's trial from August to July.
Crowd pleaded guilty in October of 2013.
