Killer Released from State Hospital

Posted: Updated:

A Texas man who killed another Texas man in a Minot hotel in 2011 has won release from the State Hospital in Jamestown.

35-year-old Charles Davis admitted stabbing 48-year-old Donald Flowers to death in a conference room at the Candlewood Suites on March 12th, 2011.

The two were oil field workers doing work at the hotel that day.

But Davis avoided jail by being found not guilty by lack of criminal responsibility due to mental illness.

He was sent to the State Hospital for treatment of schizophrenia.

In District Court today in Minot, Judge William McLees signed a conditional release order, allowing Davis to live outside of the State Hospital while he continues his full time job in Jamestown.

The release requires regular treatment and drug testing, and requires Davis to stay in North Dakota unless given permission to leave.
