WILLMAR – In opening statements at the Timothy Huber murder trial in Willmar this (Thursday) morning, defense attorney Carter Greiner portrayed the defendant as a feeble-minded, physically abused son who followed the orders of his father, Delbert Huber, out of concern for his own safety.

Tim Huber, 47 of Paynesville, is charged with 1st and 2nd Degree Murder for his part in the October 8th 2011 shooting death of Timothy Larson of Albertville on Larson’s father’s farm near Belgrade.

Assistant Kandiyohi County Attorney Dane Olson talked about the victim, a teacher of emotionally and behaviorally disturbed children in the St. Michael-Albertville School District.

The first to testify was Deborah Larson, Tim Larson’s wife.

It’s possible 82-year-old Delbert Huber, who admitted shooting Larson, may testify this afternoon on a visit from prison where he’s serving a 30-year-term after pleading guilty to the shooting last August.

Judge Don Spilseth told the jury about liability for the crimes of another…that Huber could be found guilty of murder if the state could prove he aided, advised, counseled, hired or conspired with his father to kill Larson.

Deborah Larson told the 8-man, 6-woman jury about how she and her husband were at one time friendly with the Hubers, but things went downhill when Tim Huber accused Tim Larson of allowing other people to hunt on the Huber property near Paynesville.
