FARGO, N.D. (AP) – Federal court officials have released documents accusing 13 people in a methamphetamine conspiracy that resulted in the overdose deaths of two people from the Dakotas.

Brock Fish, of Bismarck, is the only defendant named in all six counts of the indictment. He’s charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs resulting in death and intent to distribute meth within school zones in Bismarck, Mandan and Hague.

Court documents show that the conspiracy resulted in the deaths of 39-year-old Douglas Peterson of Pollock, South Dakota on December 20th, and 59-year-old Cheri Bettis of Mandan, on February 6th.

Trial is scheduled November 18th in Bismarck, North Dakota.
