Ekstrom trial set for July

Holly Ekstrom, who is accused of killing Steven Fisher last summer, will stand trial in Fort Dodge starting July 22.

Ekstrom, 23, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Fisher’s death.

A trial-scheduling conference was held Friday to schedule a new trial date, which was not determined until Monday.

Ronald Dilley, who has also been charged in the case, has a change of plea hearing scheduled for Friday.

Ekstrom has pleaded not guilty.
