FARGO — Cass County court officials have launched a pilot program designed to improve the legal process for defendants who haven't yet gone to trial.

FARGO - One man was overcharging for drugs. The other was just fetching a stranger a glass of water. That's what led Ashley Kenneth Hunter to kill two men in less than 12 hours Monday and Tuesday, according to complaints filed Wednesday in Cass County District charging him with murdering 24-year-old Sam Traut and 45-year-old Clarence Flowers.
