MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The state medical examiner says a Minot woman whom authorities allege was killed by her ex-husband was stabbed 44 times in the neck, face and chest.

Medical Examiner William Massello testified Tuesday in the trial of 30-year-old Richie Wilder Jr., who faces a murder charge in the November 2015 death of 30-year-old Angila Wilder.

Massello says Wilder died within minutes of being attacked.

Her boyfriend, Christopher Jackson, testified that Wilder was pregnant.

Richie Wilder has pleaded not guilty. He could face life in prison if convicted. His trial is scheduled to last two weeks.
