Huber Murder Trial Wrapping Up 07 May 13

The closing arguments got underway Monday morning in the Timothy Huber murder trial in Kandiyohi County. The 47-year-old Paynesville man is charged with 1st- and 2nd-degree murder for the October 2011 shooting death of 43-year-old Timothy Larson of Albertville on a farm near Belgrade. Tim Huber’s 82-year-old father Delbert has admitted killing Larson and is serving a 30-year prison sentence. The state is now trying to prove that Timothy Huber is also guilty for conspiring, encouraging or advising his father in the murder. The trial began two weeks ago. The defense has tried to show that Timothy was physically abused and afraid of his father and had nothing to do with the killing. The prosecution says that both Hubers were angry with Larson, and accused him of stealing money from them, vandalizing their farm machinery and harassing them. Delbert Huber used a 105-year-old British military rifle to shoot Larson in the chest on his father Norman Larson’s farm southeast of Belgrade.
