Trial Date Set For North Dakota Suspect In Minnesota Killing

Court Action

WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) – A trial date has been set for a North Dakota man accused of killing his former girlfriend at her home across the Minnesota border in Doran.

Forty-four-year-old Jeffrey Silvernail of Wahpeton is to stand trial beginning Sept. 12, 2011. The trial is expected to last three weeks.

Silvernail is charged with second-degree intentional murder in the death of 49-year-old Lori Roberts, who was found dead in her apartment Oct. 2, 2009. She had been shot twice. Silvernail was arrested last spring and remains in custody.

Authorities say Silvernail was Roberts’ live-in boyfriend until shortly before her death and was in the process of moving out of her home the week Roberts was killed.
