Vick Enters Not Guilty Pleas, Still No Charges in Mother's Death

Bismarck, ND -

A woman was found dead in her home near Lincoln six weeks ago and charges have yet to be filed for her murder.

Her son, Christopher Vick, is charged with crimes against another victim for the incident that happened in the Burleigh County home.

Vick was in court today for his preliminary hearing on the case.

What happened in this home six weeks ago, still remains a mystery, at least to the public.

Chris Vick pleaded not guilty in Burleigh County Court Monday to attempted murder and felonious restraint.

Those charges address one victim.

But there's still the death of his mother, Alice, that has not been charged out.

Limited information on the May 30th crime has been revealed...

According to court documents Chris Vick attacked his brother, Shawn, with a hammer.

Shawn escaped from the home.

Chris then attacked Shawn's girlfriend who was sleeping.

That's where these charges come from.

Court records say Chris stabbed the woman multiple times in the face, chest, shoulders and breasts.

Authorities say she had a cut from the top of her skull to behind her ear and all the way under her chin and up the other side of her face.

Chris Vick forced her into a car and made her drive out in the county, where he dumped a knife.

They then drove to St. Alexius where the woman spent hours in surgery.

A detective says the knife wound to the victim's face was brutal, the worse he'd seen.

The attempted murder carries a 20 year maximum sentence with a four year mandatory minimum.

As for the death of Alice Vick.

We know she died of blunt force trauma to the head but no information has been made public as to how she was killed or how her death fits into the string of events that day.

Authorities say there is still an ongoing investigation into Alice Vicks' death.

If Chris Vick is charged with his mother's murder, prosecutors say it will be charged as a separate crime.

Vick will return to court August 19th.

Court documents list 42 witnesses that could be called to testify if the case goes to trial.
