2 Douglas County Men To Be Tried in North Dakota for Attempted Murder

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A North Dakota judge says there is enough evidence against two Minnesota men to try them on attempted murder charges in connection with the beating of a Bismarck man.

Thirty-three-year-old Jose Osorio and 19-year-old Kelvin Oviedo pleaded not guilty to the charges Friday after Judge David Reich ruled there was probable cause for the charges, following a preliminary hearing.

Police detective Joe Arenz testified that 25-year-old Rafael Zayas was repeatedly beaten and stabbed nine times between the night of June 11th and morning of June 12th at an apartment.

Arenz says Osorio acknowledged to beating and stabbing what he thought to be a shadow and Oviedo also used dumb bells in the attack.

Osorio and Oviedo were later arrested in Douglas County, Minnesota.
