JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A medical examiner testifying in the case of a Jamestown woman accused of killing a man from Somalia said the man had brain injury that would have been fatal even with medical attention.

The Jamestown Sun reports that William Massello testified in the fourth day of testimony in the case of Janelle Cave. The 22-year-old Cave is charged with murder and criminal conspiracy in the death of 18-year-old Abdi Ali Ahmed. His body was found in a ditch near Spiritwood on April 30, 2011. Authorities say he was beaten and stabbed.

Massello said the injuries on both sides of Ahmed's head could have come from two blows or from one blow and Ahmed striking his head as he fell.

A Jamestown man also pleaded not guilty in the case.
