JAMESTOWN (AP) -- Prosecutors presented crime scene photos in the murder trial of a Jamestown woman charged with beating and stabbing to death a Somali immigrant.

Twenty-two-year-old Janelle Cave is charged with murder and criminal conspiracy in the death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed. His body was found in a ditch near Spiritwood on April 30.

The trial for 34-year-old Leron Howard of Jamestown is scheduled to begin Aug. 7. He also has pleaded not guilty to murder and criminal conspiracy.

Photos presented Wednesday afternoon showed Ahmed lying face-down in mud at the bottom of the ditch of a gravel road.
