Testimony Continues in Belgrade Area Murder Trial
WILLMAR – A Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Department detective took the stand today and talked about the farm equipment that seemed to spark an argument that led to a murder last fall.
Eric Tollefson looked at the two tractors, haybaler and rake owned by Delbert and Tim Huber the day after Tim Larson was shot on his father Norman’s farm near Belgrade October 7th.
Tim Larson had told the Hubers to move the gear off the property, which they did, relocating it onto a neighboring property. The Hubers then claimed someone had purposedly left the lights on on one of the tractors, and had added something to the tractor’s oil. The Hubers argued with Larson, and the next day, Delbert shot him and left him for dead.
During Tim Huber’s omnibus hearing today, Tollefson said he checked the oil and lights on the tractors the next day and they seemed normal.
Tim Huber’s attorneys are challenging the 1st Degree Murder Indictment against him, and after they received the transcripts from the grand jury proceedings, another omnibus hearing and potential trial date will be scheduled.
Huber, 46, remains in the Kandiyohi County Jail on 1 million dollars bail.
Delbert Huber, 82, pleaded guilty to lesser charges last month and will be sentenced next week.
Several members of Tim Larson’s family attended Tim Huber’s hearing today.
