Father, son charged in rural Belgrade, Minn., murder set to appear in court today; father to represent himself

WILLMAR -- The two rural Paynesville men accused of murdering Timothy Richard Larson, 43, of Albertville, are scheduled to appear this afternoon in Kandiyohi County District Court.

According to court records, Delbert Huber, 81, is representing himself against a second-degree murder charge for the Oct. 8 shooting incident at a rural Belgrade residence.

Huber's son, Timothy Huber, 45, also faces a second-degree murder charge, plus a felony for aiding an offender by serving as an accomplice after the fact. The younger Huber was granted a public defender. According to court records, his public defender is Carter Greiner.

The hearing is set for 1:15 p.m. today before Judge Donald M. Spilseth.

Delbert Huber is accused of shooting Larson with a 303 British Enfield rifle during a confrontation over the fact that Larson ordered the Hubers and their farm equipment off of property owned by Larson's father. Larson was unarmed and was allegedly shot by Delbert Huber while Timothy Huber fed the cattle and chickens at Norman Larson's farm.

According to the complaints against them, the Hubers left Larson's body at the farm along 44th Street Northeast and did not report the killing to law enforcement until more than 12 hours later.

Delbert Huber is held on $5 million bail and Timothy Huber on $1 million bail, both in the Kandiyohi County Jail.
