Two Fort Dodge residents are now jailed in connection with the death of 22-year-old Steven Fisher of Fort Dodge last week. Twenty-nine-year-old Ronald J. Dilley and 22-year-old Holly Ekstrom are facing a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Fisher, whose body was discovered in a ditch west of Otho last Wednesday afternoon.
Bond for both Dilley and Ekstrom is set at $500,000. The two are being held in the Webster County Jail. On Friday, a vehicle owned by Fisher was discovered by authorities in the 1300 block of Second Avenue South in Fort Dodge.
Last Wednesday, a farmer discovered the body of Fisher while mowing a ditch on a county road near Otho. A preliminary hearing for both Dilley and Ekstrom is set for this Friday in Webster County Magistrate Court.
