FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- A judge has refused to accept a guilty plea from a man charged with a double murder in Fargo.
35 year-old David Stevens wanted to plead guilty to the stabbing deaths of Ward Berg, 30 of Moorhead and his ex-girlfriend, 23 year-old Samantha Wickenheiser of Fargo.
The judge told Stevens that he could not take a guilty plea at such an early stage in the case. He ordered a mental evaluation.
Berg and Wickenheiser were found stabbed to death outside her north Fargo apartment late last month.
