Jury Selection Begins in Norberg case

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE

Jury selection starts Monday morning in the case of a former Fargo surgeon accused of drugging and raping his wife.  Jon Norberg is accused of giving his wife a powerful pain killer in their home, then raping her while she was unconscious.

Earlier this year Norberg backed out of a plea deal with prosecutors because he felt it might affect his pending divorce case. Lawyers say the trial could last until Thanksgiving.

Stay tuned to Valley News Live and valleynewslive.com throughout the case for the latest updates.

ORIGINAL STORY

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo surgeon accused of drugging and sexually assaulting his wife will stand trial after failing to convince a judge to throw out the case against him.

Jon Norberg is accused of having sex with Alonna Norberg after giving her propofol, a medication that gained notoriety during the trial against the doctor who treated pop star Michael Jackson. Jon Norberg backed out of a plea deal with prosecutors earlier this spring because he felt it might affect his pending divorce case.

Judge Douglas Herman on Thursday ruled that prosecutors have enough evidence to move the case forward to trial. It's scheduled to begin Aug. 28.

The Associated Press typically does not identify victims of sex crimes but Alonna Norberg has spoken publicly about the case.
