Broadband project teeters on brink; Kandiyohi County officials still hopeful

Jury takes up Huber case this morning

WILLMAR — A jury of six men and six women in the Timothy Huber murder case has begun a second day of deliberations at the Kandiyohi County Courthouse.

The jury received the case around 2 p.m. Monday and retired for the night around 10:30 p.m. Monday without reaching a verdict.

Huber, 47, of rural Paynesville, is standing trial on first- and second-degree murder charges in the case. He and his father, Delbert Huber, were indicted on the charges for killing Timothy Larson, 43, on Oct. 8, 2011, after a confrontation on the Norman Larson property in rural Belgrade over allegedly stolen money and tractor parts and alleged vandalism of the Hubers’ farm tractors.

The younger Huber is charged under the liability for crimes of another portion of Minnesota law, which says that a person is criminally liable for the crime committed by another if the person “intentionally aids, advises, hires, counsels, or conspires with or otherwise procures the other to commit the crime.”

If he is convicted of first-degree premeditated murder, Timothy Huber will go to prison for the rest of his life. His father, now 82, is already serving the maximum sentence of 367 months in prison for second-degree murder, to which he pleaded guilty in August.

According to the Department of Corrections, Delbert Huber is in the Minnesota Correctional Facility at Faribault.

Timothy Huber has been held in the Kandiyohi County Jail since the day of the killing on $1 million bail.

The trial is before District Judge Donald M. Spilseth.
