Change of Plea Hearing Scheduled for Fort Dodge Murder Suspect
One of two suspects charged in the July death of a Fort Dodge man may change his plea. A change of plea hearing is scheduled for 29 year-old Fort Dodge man Ronald Dilley, who is facing a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 22 year-old Steven Fisher. Both Dilley and 23 year-old Holly Ekstrom were charged two days after Fisher's remains were found in a ditch near Otho on July 10. Both have remained held on $50,000 bond and both trials were set to begin on April 8. Dilley's change of plea hearing is scheduled for April 4, while Judge Kurt Wilke has received no indication that Ekstrom will change her plea.
