Verdict Reached In Huber Trial 08 May 13

The prosecutor in the Timothy Huber trial feels that justice was served even without a first-degree murder conviction. The 47-year-old rural Paynesville man was found guilty on two counts for the October 2011 shooting death of 43-year-old Timothy Larson of Albertville. Kandiyohi County Attorney Jenna Fischer says she felt very strongly that Huber was responsible for first-degree murder. She says she “can certainly live with the jury’s verdict of second-degree intentional murder,” and that it “does show that they did believe Mr. Huber intentionally took part in assisting his father commit this murder.” Larson had ordered Huber and his father to remove their farm equipment from the Larson property in rural Belgrade before he was fatally shot. 82-year-old Delbert Huber admitted to shooting Larson and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last summer. He is serving a 30-year prison sentence. Timothy Huber will be sentenced on July 12th, and will also face the possibility of spending more than 30 years in prison.
