CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) — A Cannon Ball woman accused of killing her boyfriend has been released to a halfway house while her case proceeds through federal court.

Twenty-six-year-old Ivanna Red Bow allegedly stabbed Loren Uses Arrow in the chest during an argument in her home on Dec. 30. Court documents say he was later pronounced dead at a Fort Yates hospital.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Red Bow claimed in court she was acting in self-defense. She is due back in court for a preliminary hearing Jan. 14.
