WILLMAR -- Delbert Huber, 81, and Timothy Huber, 45, of rural Paynesville, have been indicted on first-degree premeditated murder charges for the Oct. 8 shooting death of Timothy Richard Larson, 43, of Albertville, during a dispute in northern Kandiyohi County.

Both Hubers appeared this morning before District Judge Donald M. Spilseth on the new charges. Delbert Huber faces the first-degree murder charge, along with two counts of second-degree murder, one for intentional and one for unintentional murder. Timothy Huber faces the same three charges, but under the liability for crimes of another statutes in state law.

The grand jury indictment was issued Wednesday, according to what Spilseth said during the hearing.

Both men could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted of the first-degree charges against them.

They remain in the Kandiyohi County Jail.

According to court records, 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 farm 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.
