Jury selected, testimony in Huber murder trial starts Thursday
WILLMAR — The jury has been selected in the first-degree murder trial of Timothy John Huber in Kandiyohi County District Court.
The 14 jurors, including the 12 required jurors plus two alternates, were selected by 3 p.m. this afternoon. The attorneys will give their opening arguments and testimony will begin on Thursday morning before District Judge Donald M. Spilseth.
Jury selection began yesterday. The court had previously expected that the selection process could take most or all of this week, with the following two weeks, through May 10, scheduled for the trial.
County Attorney Jenna Fischer and assistant county attorneys Dain Olson and Chris Jensen are prosecuting the case and Huber is represented by two public defenders, Stephen Ferrazzano and Carter Greiner.
Huber, 47, of Paynesville, and his father, Delbert, were indicted on first- and second-degree murder charges in the case. Larson, 43, a teacher from Albertville, was killed Oct. 8, 2011, on his father’s rural Belgrade property after a confrontation with the Hubers.
