Non-Jury Trial For A Suspect Charged In A Lake Park Murder Case Scheduled To Begin Tuesday

Mon 5-16-2022

(Spirit Lake)– Trial for a suspect charged in the 2020 death of a Lake Park woman is scheduled to start tomorrow (Tues.) in Dickinson County District Court. 27-year-old Allison Decker was charged with first degree murder in the death of Angel Bastman of Lake Park, who was found dead in her Lake Park home.

Another person charged in the case, Justice Berntson, pled guilty late last year to a reduced charge of attempted murder as part of a plea deal. He reportedly will testify against Decker.

Decker has waived her right to a jury trial.
