MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Texas man who stabbed to death a fellow oil field worker in a North Dakota hotel about four years ago is seeking to be released from state supervision.

Thirty-seven-year-old Charles Davis, of Trinity, Texas, acknowledged killing 48-year-old Donald Flowers, of Wichita Falls, Texas, in a conference room at the Candlewood Suites in Minot in March 2011. But he was found to be not criminally responsible due to mental illness, and sent to the State Hospital in Jamestown for treatment of schizophrenia.

Two psychologists testified this week that Davis is not a substantial risk to the public if released from supervision. Prosecutors argued he might be a risk if he fails to take his medicine.

Judge Stacy Louser ordered both sides to submit written arguments, after which she will rule.
