GRAND FORKS, N.D.  — Bond has been set at half a million dollars for a man accused in a fatal stabbing west of Grand Forks.

Twenty-one-year-old Joe Saucedo is charged with felony murder and conspiracy to commit burglary in the death of 33-year-old Ruben Cisneros, of Grand Forks. He was found Sunday stabbed to death at a farm house.

Court documents don't list an attorney for Saucedo, who's from Tucker, Ga. He's due to enter a plea Jan. 10, or on Dec. 23 if he waives his preliminary hearing.

The Grand Forks Herald reports Saucedo told a judge he came to the area about 1 ½ months ago and is homeless. He could face life in prison without parole if convicted.

Three other people are charged in the case with conspiracy to commit burglary.
