One Defendant Dropped From Sjol Case

Posted: Updated:

A man accused of plotting the murder of a Williams County rancher has had the conspiracy charges against him dropped.

The Class Double-A Felony charge was dismissed Friday against Jeremy Weyrauch, one of several defendants in the case of murdered rancher Jack Sjol.

Sjol went missing in April and his body was found a few miles from his ranch about three weeks later.

Ryan Stensaker was charged with murder in the case in May - and in July, five other people were charged with crimes related to Sjol's death.

Weyrauch was one of two charged with conspiracy to commit murder, but that charge has now been dismissed.

Ronald Gibbons remains charged with conspiracy in the case. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week in Northwest District Court in Williston.
