Huber Trial Adjourns For Weekend
WILLMAR -- It was a short day today for jurors in the Timothy Huber murder trial.
Day two of testimony began at 9:00 a.m. and things wrapped-up for the week at 2:15 p.m. They have the weekend off and will resume at 9 a.m. Monday.
Huber, 47 of rural Paynesville, is charged with 1st and 2nd Degree Murder for the October 8th 2011 shooting death of 43-year-old Timothy Larson of Albertville. Huber's father, Delbert, admitted pulling the trigger, although he said it was by accident, after an argument with Larson at Larson's father's farm.
Delbert Huber is currently serving a 30 year prison term, and now Kandiyohi County prosecutors are trying to prove to the jury his son Tim either knew, conspired with or encouraged Delbert to shoot Larson.
In testimony Thursday, Delbert Huber accused Tim Larson of Harassing the Hubers and vandalizing their property because he was angry that the Hubers would not let him hunt on their property.
Larson, a teacher in the St. Michael-Albertville School District, lived 60 miles away at the time.
Tim Huber's defense team is trying to prove the Hubers were afraid of Larson, while prosecutors are trying to prove the Hubers talked about the perceived harassment and plotted Larson's demise.
