OSSIPEE, N.H. — One man has declined a hearing and two others have had theirs postponed in the case of a slain Portland woman whose body was found in a New Hampshire pond with her unharmed 14-month-old daughter in her car nearby.

Krista Dittmeyer’s body was found in a ski area’s snowmaking pond April 27. Last week, Anthony Papile, Michael Petelis and Trevor Ferguson were arraigned in Ossipee in connection with her April 22 robbery and killing.

Prosecutors said Papile and Petelis ambushed the 20-year-old Dittmeyer to steal drugs and money. Papile was charged with second-degree murder. Petelis and Ferguson were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

All three were scheduled for probable cause hearings Thursday. Ferguson waived his right to a hearing. The others were postponed; a new date wasn’t set.
