Jury finds man not guilty to murder; guilty of lesser manslaughter charge
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - After a three day trial and three hours of deliberation, a Morton County jury found a 48-year-old man not guilty of murder.
Arthur Funk was found not guilty of murder, but the jury brought back a guilty verdict for a manslaughter charge Wednesday night.
Judge Cynthia Feland ordered a pre-sentence investigation.
Funk stabbed and killed 53-year-old Keven Stockert outside of his residence at a trailer court in Mandan in July of 2020.
Funk’s attorney argued he acted in self defense as the two men were in a physical altercation.
