Federal murder charge filed in reservation stabbing
PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) — A federal murder charge has been filed in a fatal stabbing on the Fort Berthold Reservation.
Chantel Ducheneaux is accused of killing Taylor Benson with a kitchen knife at a mobile home in Parshall last Friday. A court affidavit filed by the FBI says the two women had been arguing before Benson was stabbed.
The federal court in Bismarck has appointed public defender Jason Tupman to handle Ducheneaux’s case. He declined to comment on it.
