Paynesville Murder Charges Filed 12 Oct 11

An 81-year-old man has been charged with murder following a fatal shooting in central Minnesota over the weekend. Delbert Huber of rural Paynesville allegedly shot and killed 43-year-old Timothy Larson because he believed the man had stolen 50 dollars and some farm parts. Larson’s father had reportedly hired Huber and his son to do chores. Larson then came to hunt for the weekend and wanted the Hubers to move their farm machinery off the land. The Hubers allegedly returned to the Larson property Saturday morning with Delbert Huber armed with a rifle, and he shot Larson in the chest. Huber was charged Tuesday, along with the 45-year-old son, Timothy Huber, who also faces a 2nd-degree murder charge as well as aiding and abetting. Both of them remain in custody, with bail set at 5-million dollars. Larson was a popular special education teacher at St. Michael-Albertville Middle School.
