MINOT, N.D. — Trial will be scheduled sometime early next year for a Minot man accused of firing a gun at his girlfriend as she fled a home with her young son.

James Blue II in August pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and terrorizing charges related to incidents at a mobile home park in mid-January. He also pleaded not guilty to firing shots at police officers and assaulting paramedics. No one was seriously hurt.

The Minot Daily News reports that Judge Gary Lee said during a pretrial conference Wednesday that he will arrange for a two-week block of time for the trial sometime early next year.
