Huber Trial Set for April 23 Jan 13

The jury trial of a rural Paynesville man charged with first-degree murder is scheduled to begin April 22nd in Kandiyohi County District Court.

46-year-old Timothy John Huber was indicted on first- and second-degree murder charges for the October 2011 shooting death of 43-year-old Timothy Richard Larson in northern Kandiyohi County.

The West Central Tribune reports he’ll be tried before District Judge Donald M. Spilseth from April 22nd to May 10th at the Willmar courthouse.

Larson, of Albertville, was killed October 8th, 2011, on his father’s rural Belgrade property after a confrontation with Huber and his father, Delbert, that apparently stemmed in part from the Hubers’ farm equipment being parked at the Larson farm. During the court hearings, the Hubers have contended that Larson stole money from Timothy Huber’s wallet and then vandalized their tractors.

The Hubers were both indicted on first-degree and second-degree murder charges.

As part of a plea agreement, the 82-year-old Delbert Huber was sentenced in September to 367 months in prison for second-degree murder.
