Man, 82, pleads guilty in Minn. farm killing

WILLMAR, Minn. — An 82-year-old man has pleaded guilty to second-degree intentional murder in a fatal shooting during a confrontation at a rural Belgrade farm last fall.

Delbert Huber of rural Paynesville pleaded guilty Friday. Huber admitted in court that he pointed a loaded rifle at 43-year-old Timothy Larson of Albertville and pulled the trigger.

The shooting happened last October after Larson ordered Huber and his son to remove their farm equipment from his father's farm.

Huber's son, 45-year-old Timothy Huber, is awaiting trial on a first-degree murder indictment. The West Central Tribune reports the first-degree indictment against Delbert Huber was dismissed as a condition of his pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
