Fargo Man Could Spend Life In State Hospital

Posted: Updated:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A 51-year-old Fargo man accused of killing his wife has been found not guilty by reason of lack of criminal responsibility, but could spend the rest of his life in the State Hospital in Jamestown.

Henry Leo Deniger first told a judge that the Holy Ghost and Jesus Christ commanded him to ask for a jury trial. Minutes later, he agreed to have a bench trial.
    
Judge Steven McCullough found Deninger not guilty by reason of a lack of criminal responsibility. The judge ordered that Deniger be returned to the State Hospital to determine if he's mentally ill and whether there's a substantial risk he might commit another violent crime.
    
Deniger was accused of fatally stabbing his 52-year-old wife, Kathye Deniger.
