MINOT, N.D. – The courts have scheduled a change of plea hearing for Monday for a 25-year-old Minot man accused of killing a woman and fleeing to South Dakota last June.

Duell Clifton has a plea change hearing set for April 12 at 1 p.m. in Ward County, according to the online docket.

Prosecutors charged Clifton with AA-felony murder and C-felony tampering with physical evidence in the death of 22-year-old Alytreus Clifton.

Clifton pleaded not guilty to the charges in August. The details of any plea deal are unclear.
