DICKINSON (AP) - Trial has been canceled and a change-of-plea hearing scheduled for a North Dakota man accused of killing the mother of a child he believed was his daughter.
Dirk Huber, of Belfield, had pleaded not guilty to murdering Nicole Radebaugh in her apartment bedroom in August 2011. He was scheduled for trial beginning Oct. 15. Court documents show that he will appear in court to change his plea instead.
Authorities allege that Huber used a pillow to suffocate Radebaugh after an argument about the paternity of her daughter. Huber evaded police for several days after her death before being arrested in a wilderness area north of Medora.
