    So she's probably going to be a witness against Hoehn, is what I'm thinking.

    The trial of William Henry Hoehn, charged in the murder of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind and the abduction of her newborn baby, has been postponed until May 15.

    Judge Olson also ordered that a pretrial conference be held in February to consider questions to be included on the questionnaire and other procedural matters. The pretrial conference was later scheduled for Friday, Feb. 9.

    Gruesome details in case of pregnant woman killed for baby as neighbor is sentenced

    Prosecutors say a North Dakota woman who admitted killing a pregnant neighbor so she and her boyfriend could keep the baby also admitted to cutting out the baby while the mother was still alive.

    A judge sentenced Brooke Crews to life in prison without the possibility of parole, as prosecutors requested, at a hearing Friday.

    Crews, 38, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit murder and lying to law officers in the August death of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind of Fargo. She appeared in court in orange prison clothing, cuffed at the wrists. Crews did not have a plea deal with prosecutors, but hoped that admitting responsibility at a December hearing would help her at Friday's sentencing.

    Prosecutors say Crews cut the baby out of the mother's womb while Greywind went in and out of consciousness.

    Hoehn has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial in March.

    Hoehn breaks silence before his trial in the murder of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind

    William Hoehn admits he made a life-changing mistake on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017.

    "I should've called police that night," he told The Forum on a recent evening from inside the Cass County Jail, where he awaits trial on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and lying to police.

    He claims he came home from work to his north Fargo apartment that day to find his live-in girlfriend, Brooke Crews, cleaning blood from their bathroom.

    Crews presented him with a baby and said, "This is our baby, this is our family," Hoehn told police, according to court records.

    He said during a series of recent jailhouse interviews that he "didn't lie to police" when giving his account of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind's killing and the kidnapping of her unborn child.

    Rather than call police that day, he took bloody shoes and bloody towels from the apartment and disposed of them in a West Fargo dumpster.

    Surprise information rocks Greywind murder trial

    The trial of William Hoehn on conspiracy to commit murder was hit with two bombshells Tuesday.

    The first landed Tuesday morning, when his alleged co-conspirator and ex-girlfriend, Brooke Crews, testified that Hoehn strangled Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, 22, as she lay bleeding on the floor of the couple's bathroom.

    The second hit late Tuesday afternoon, when lawyers addressed newly obtained information from Jennifer Robinson, a female inmate Crews had conversations with about five months ago. Robinson related to authorities that Crews told her she strangled LaFontaine-Greywind herself and cut her baby from her womb within three minutes of strangling her.

    Crews said Hoehn uttered several expletives, then asked whether LaFontaine-Greywind was alive. She said she responded: "I don't know. Please help me."

    Crews said Hoehn left the doorway and returned wearing only his underwear and carrying some rope.

    She said he put the rope around LaFontaine-Greywind's neck, pulled it tight and said that if she wasn't dead before, "she is now."

    Crews said Hoehn then took charge, directing her to help him clean the bathroom.

    Olson allowed questioning of Crews to continue. And Crews related how the couple first hid LaFontaine-Greywind's body in a bathroom closet and later moved it to a dresser that Hoehn had removed the drawers from and then nailed the drawer faces back on to conceal the body.

    She said they carried the dresser out of the apartment building early in the morning on Aug. 21, 2017, and loaded it into a jeep.

    Crews said Hoehn drove off in the jeep and she learned later he dumped the remains in the Red River, something she said she asked him not to do.

    Jury acquits William Hoehn of murder conspiracy in Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind’s killing

    William Hoehn showed little to no reaction Friday, Sept. 28, when a 12-person jury declared him not guilty of a charge of conspiring to murder Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind in August 2017.

    The decision came roughly two weeks after the start of Hoehn’s trial in Cass County District Court, which saw testimony from about two dozen witnesses.

    Before the trial, Hoehn pleaded guilty to a felony charge of conspiring to commit kidnapping and a misdemeanor charge of lying to police in connection with LaFontaine-Greywind’s death. Hoehn will be sentenced on those charges at a later date. He remains in custody at the Cass County Jail.

    She expressed disappointment with the verdict, saying prosecutors still believed evidence in the case supported a finding of guilty and that the conspiracy charge Hoehn faced was the appropriate charge.

    ‘She is a happy little girl’: More than a year later, baby stolen from slain mother’s womb is thriving, father says

    The boyfriend of a slain North Dakota woman whose neighbors cut their unborn child from her womb in August 2017 said their now-16-month-old is doing well despite the loss of her mother.

    Speaking with People, Ashton Matheny said he is enrolled in community college while his toddler daughter, Haisley Jo Matheny, is in a Head Start program where she loves playing with other children. Ashton is living life as a single father following the murder of his pregnant girlfriend, Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, 22, whose disappearance and slaying sparked a yearlong saga that grabbed international headlines.

    “She says ‘Daddy and Mommy,’” he said. “She just learned to say puppy.”

    Ashton told People that money is tight and that opportunities for work are scarce where he lives. He said a Go Fund Me that amassed $20,000 allowed him to purchase a new vehicle and renovate the home he and Haisley Jo share.

    The single father went on to say that he thinks about his slain girlfriend every day and, despite any struggles, he’s “content” with his life these days.

    Referring to his toddler daughter, he said, “She is a happy little girl.”

    Supreme Court throws out Hoehn sentence

    The North Dakota Supreme Court has issued a ruling in the case of William Hoehn, the man accused of kidnapping Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind's baby.

    According to documents filed Thursday, while the conviction was affirmed by the high court, the sentence has been vacated and Hoehn will be, by order of the Supreme Court, re-sentenced.

    Documents say that, at Hoehn’s initial appearance he was informed that the conspiracy to commit kidnapping charge is a class A felony punishable by up to twenty years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Approximately three months after Hoehn’s initial appearance and nine months before he pled guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping, the State filed a notice of intent to sentence Hoehn as a dangerous special offender.

    Hoehn pled guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping at a September 2018 change of plea hearing. Tbe documents from the Supreme Court say that, 'at no time during the hearing did the court address with Hoehn the extended maximum penalty that could result from a dangerous special offender finding.' The court accepted Hoehn’s 7 guilty plea to the conspiracy to commit kidnapping. Almost two months later, Hoehn was found to be a dangerous special offender and sentenced to life in prison, according to the ruling documents filed Thursday.

    The high court says, in their ruling, that Hoehn should not have received the 'dangerous special offender' designation.

    Sentence reduced for Fargo man convicted of kidnapping Savanna Greywind's baby

    William Hoehn, who was originally ordered to serve life in prison for his role in the kidnapping of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind’s baby, was resentenced on Monday, Oct. 7, to spend 20 years behind bars.

    Judge Olson said he did "not have to struggle much" in sentencing Hoehn the first time to life in prison, but since the state Supreme Court disagreed with that sentence he would have to change it, though he said he was still intent on sentencing Hoehn to the maximum possible, 20 years.
