Editorial: Tragic case ends; loss felt daily by Larsons

A sad chapter in Kandiyohi County history concluded Friday when Timothy Huber was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the second-degree murder of Timothy Larson.

This follows Delbert Larson’s guilty plea in 2012 to the second-degree murder charge in the same case. He is now serving a sentence of more than 30 years.

The two men were indicted on the charges for the Oct. 2011 killing of Larson, 43, of Albertville. Delbert Larson shot and killed Larson after a confrontation on the Norman Larson property in rural Paynesville. Norman is Timothy Larson’s father.

This is a tragic case that impacted many and harmed the respective families.

Timothy Larson is missed by his wife, children and family. It is a loss they feel daily and he is dearly missed.

The communities of Albertville and St. Michael-Albertville Schools miss Timothy Larson, a special education teacher. He was a good and caring man as noted by his wife and notes from fellow teachers and students about his kindness and support.

Both Delbert and Timothy Larson have now been sentenced under the laws of Minnesota for their crime of second-degree murder and must serve out their respective sentences. They will no longer be “a danger to society” here in west central Minnesota.

While this case has concluded justly, the pain of the loss of Timothy Larson will last a lifetime for his family and his communities.
