Prosectors argue against tossing out police interview
There’s no basis for moving an upcoming murder trial away from Fargo or for throwing out a police interview conducted with the defendant, Cass County prosecutors argue in briefs filed Tuesday.
UPDATED 4:33 p.m.
Jurors considering murder charges against Michael Nakvinda for the hammer beating of a Fargo dentist last year will be returning to the Cass County Courthouse on Friday to continue deliberating the case.

In two hours of testimony this afternoon, Philip Gattuso’s former father-in-law denied both ordering the death of the Fargo dentist and framing the man he’s accused of hiring as a hitman, Michael Nakvinda.
