BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Trial has been scheduled May 1 for a homeless woman in Bismarck who is accused of not properly caring for her children.

Thirty-four-year-old Ruthann Mountain has pleaded not guilty to felony child abuse or neglect charges that could land her in prison for up to 15 years if she’s convicted.
