BISMARCK, N.D. - A Missoula man has been charged with kidnapping and murder in Bismark, N.D.
CBS Affiliate KXMB Bismark reported that John Bridges of Missoula appeared in court this afternoon and was charged with killing Lee Clay.
Friday afternoon, the North Dakota Highway Patrol found Clay dead in the back of a van parked in the median along Interstate 94 east of Bismark. Police say Clay's injuries weren't consistent with a vehicle accident.
Police said Bridges abducted Clay with the intent to commit murder, then killed him.
Authorities obtained search warrants for Bridge's pocket knife, along with three cell phones and a SD memory card.
The judge set no bond because of Bridges' violent past.
