Montana man says dream made him kill man in ND

BISMARCK — A Montana man charged with kidnapping and murdering a Georgia man working in North Dakota told investigators he felt compelled to kill two people in Bismarck after having a dream about them.

Forty-two-year-old John Bridges, of Missoula, Mont., is accused of killing 40-year-old Lee Clay, who was a passenger in a van that Bridges was driving. The Highway Patrol says the van crashed and went in the ditch off Interstate 94 just east of Bismarck on July 6. Clay was found dead in the vehicle.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/R4Aabi) that the two men apparently met while working at a temp agency.

Tim Myers with the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation testified that Bridges said he had a dream on July 5 that made him suspicious of Clay.
