Man plans to plead guilty in oil patch killing

SIDNEY, Mont. (AP) — A Colorado man plans to plead guilty to killing a Montana teacher in a case that drew attention to the darker side of the Northern Plains' oil boom.

A plea agreement with prosecutors filed Tuesday calls for a 100-year sentence for 25-year-old Michael Spell on a charge of deliberate homicide.

Spell is charged with the 2012 murder of Sherry Arnold, a 43-year-old Sidney high school teacher who disappeared while jogging. Her body was found buried in a North Dakota field.

Spell is due in court Wednesday before District Judge Richard Simonton in Sidney.

Prosecutors want Spell to serve his time in prison. The defense will ask for him to be sentenced to the state health department, which would allow Spell to be sent to a facility for the mentally disabled.

Hunters are Asked to be Courteous in the Field

As the General hunting season approaches Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks of Region 6 would like to remind you to be courteous of landowners’ property while in the field. While most hunters make a conscious effort to close gates behind them, every year some gates get left open by careless hunters causing landowners additional work. This can result in many hours of effort re-sorting already worked cows and calves. The common rule is to leave gates as they are found, but there can be exceptions.

For example, if you find a gate lying on the ground with cattle on one side and none on the other, the gate may have been left open by another hunter, and not the landowner. Please take a few minutes to find out if the gate should be closed, by calling the landowner, public land agency, or even a MFWP employee (Game Warden, Block Management Tech, or Biologist).

The time you take to contact someone, could be the difference in keeping the land open to hunting in the future.

More landowners join Missouri River flood lawsuit

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The list of landowners suing the federal government over major flooding along the Missouri River since 2006 has grown considerably.

The lawsuit filed against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in March was amended Thursday to include 436 plaintiffs. The latest additions to the lawsuit include 38 North Dakota landowners and the Omaha and Winnebago tribes of Nebraska.

The landowners argue that the Corps' decisions since 2006 have contributed to flooding especially during the extended 2011 flooding that devastated hundreds of thousands of acres of mostly farmland in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.

The federal government has denied the allegations and says the Corps shouldn't be blamed.

Landowners say the recurring flooding deprived them of their land, so they should be compensated.

2 men arrested in Glendive in Internet sex sting

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — An eastern Montana man and a western North Dakota man are charged with sexual abuse of children after prosecutors say they responded to online prostitution advertisements for sex with underage girls.

The Montana Department of Justice says 25-year-old Steve Unger of Glasgow, North Dakota and 37-year-old John Allyn Parker of Elgin, North Dakota were arrested Friday in Glendive. That's where officers say they arrived to have sex with girls ages 13 or 15.

Both made initial appearances in Justice Court in Glendive on Tuesday and are scheduled to enter pleas in District Court on October 21st.

Unger was released from jail after posting a $75,000 bond. The DOJ says Parker remains jailed in Glendive with bail set at $75,000.
