Bond set at $1 million for homeless man in North Dakota charged with murder in death of man


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Bond has been set at $1 million for a homeless man in North Dakota charged with felony murder in death of a 57-year-old Mississippi man.

Forty-five-year-old Mark Butts was charged Thursday in Bismarck. He was arrested after police found the body of Richard Everett Glover on a street next to a car about 1:30 a.m. Police were impounding the car, in which two people were seen by patrol officers late Wednesday.

Butts in court said he has no home and is out of a job. He said he was on his "way back to California."

Assistant State's Attorney Pamela Nesvig says Butts has several convictions in the Dakotas and California.

Court records show Butts is from Rapid City. Records do not list an attorney for Butts.
