Delbert Huber

Supreme Court ruling adds wrinkle to Huber murder case


WILLMAR -- A recent Minnesota Supreme Court ruling in an Otter Tail County case has implications for the first-degree murder case against Delbert Huber, 82, of rural Paynesville.

Huber does not have a lawyer to represent him. He was denied a court-appointed public defender in Kandiyohi County District Court and has not hired his own attorney.

The court has appointed stand-by counsel to answer procedural questions for Huber, but not to represent him in the case.
