Trial set in stabbing death of ND man in New Town

FARGO — Trial is scheduled this week in the July 2012 stabbing death of a man on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.

Waylon Hicks is charged in federal court with second-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty. Authorities say Hicks killed Jeremiah Sage after the two left a New Town bar.

The 30-year-old Sage, of Halliday, served two tours of duty with the Marines in Iraq. He was working as a compliance officer with Three Affiliated Tribes in North Dakota.

Authorities say Hicks is an enrolled member of Walker River Paiute Tribe in Nevada.

A pre-trial conference is scheduled Tuesday at 9 a.m. in Bismarck.
