Still Without Attorney 30 Nov 11

A rural Paynesville man indicted for first-degree murder for allegedly killing 43-year-old Timothy Richard Larson of Albertville, in Kandiyohi County still has not secured the services of a lawyer to represent him.

The West Central Tribune reports 81-year-old Delbert Huber and his niece, Cherry DeMarais, told District Judge Michael J. Thompson on Tuesday that they have a lawyer selected.

However, DeMarais, who holds Huber’s power of attorney, is still working on securing a loan to hire legal counsel.

“We are working on a bank loan,” DeMarais told the judge. “As soon as it goes through, we will have our attorney.”

After the hearing, DeMarais said the attorney is Brad Kluver. Kluver attended the hearing, but did not speak during the proceedings.

Huber and his son, 45-year-old Timothy John Huber, were indicted by a Kandiyohi County grand jury on November 17th on first-degree premeditated murder charges. They also face second-degree intentional and unintentional murder charges for the October 8th shooting death of Larson.
