VALLEY CITY, North Dakota — A change of plea hearing has been scheduled for the two people accused of torching a Valley City church to cover up a break-in.
Barnes County State's Attorney Carl Martineck tells KOVC-AM that the hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 25.
Miklas and Nicole Lindermann, of Kathryn, were charged with burglarizing Faith Lutheran Church on Oct. 6. Both pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The fire caused an estimated $2.5 million in damage to Faith Lutheran Church. The 800-member congregation has decided to build a new church at the same spot.
