Jury selection set to begin in death of pregnant Fargo woman
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Lawyers in the case of a man accused in the killing of a pregnant North Dakota woman won’t be starting from scratch when they select the jury.
Prospective jurors are scheduled to report Tuesday for the trial of William Hoehn, charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the August 2017 death of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind of Fargo. Hoehn’s former girlfriend, Brooke Crews, pleaded guilty earlier to killing Greywind and cutting her baby from her womb. The baby survived.
Jury questionnaires were sent in April to 96 people in the jury pool, before a judge denied a request by Hoehn’s attorney to move to the trial.
Hoehn has admitted that he helped cover up Greywind’s murder, but he said he didn’t know Crews had planned to kill her.
