FARGO - Henry Leo Deniger Sr. is charged with stabbing his wife to death in Fargo last month. But she wasn't the first of his four spouses to meet a tragic end.


In fact, she wasn't even the first to suffer fatal injuries in North Dakota.

More than 30 years ago, Deniger's first wife, Peggy, a 17-year-old preacher's daughter he married in Maine, was fatally hurt in a car accident near Beach, N.D., where the newlyweds were visiting his parents.
