Huber Gets 25 Years in Prison 12 Jul 13

Timothy Huber was sentenced this morning to 25.5 years in prison

on a second-degree murder charge for his role in killing Timothy

Larson in October 2011.

The West Central Tribune reports that before he handed down the

sentence, District Judge Donald M. Spilseth noted to the Larson family

members, many of whom have been at every court hearing over the past

21 months, that they had conducted themselves in a professional and

appropriate manner. “You are a great family,” Spilseth said, noting

that their conduct was indicative of the needlessness and the

senselessness of Tim Larson’s killing.

Huber’s sentence was at the low end of the 306 to 367 month range

allowed by state sentencing guidelines for the charge. He was also

ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $44,323.61 in restitution, jointly

with his father. He was given credit for 642 days already served in

custody.

Huber had been held on $1 million bail since the day of the Oct.

8, 2011, killing and had been held without bail since the jury verdict

finding him guilty on May 7.

Huber, 47, and his father, Delbert Huber, were indicted on the

charges for killing Larson, 43, of Albertville. Delbert Huber shot and

killed Larson after a confrontation on the Norman Larson property in

rural Belgrade. Norman is Timothy Larson’s father.

Delbert Huber, now 83, is already serving the maximum sentence of

367 months in prison for second-degree intentional murder, to which he

pleaded guilty in August 2012. According to the Department of

Corrections, he is in the Minnesota Correctional Facility at

Faribault.
