The man facing murder charges in Minnesota in the drug overdose death of a teenage boy did not appear at his hearing in Grand Forks on unrelated drug charges because Minnesota officials won't release him, his attorney said Thursday.


Adam Budge, 18, is still in jail in Crookston on far heavier charges and is expected to be indicted by a federal grand jury, defense attorney DeWayne Johnston has said.
