A judge met with the attorneys Tuesday in a Minot murder case.
Thirty-seven-year-old Anthony Campbell faces a murder charge in the death of 25-year-old Shannon Brunelle last September.
Police found Brunelle's body in the garage behind an apartment complex on Minot's northwest side.
U.S. Marshall's captured Campbell in Philadelphia in November and extradited him to Minot.
Campbell's trial will begin Jan. 11 in North Central District Court.
