Man Questioned In Carlile Murder Case Wants New Lawyer

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man who has been questioned about an alleged murder-for-hire scheme in Washington state is asking for a new lawyer to represent him on illegal weapons charges.

James Henrikson, of Watford City, is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He is represented by a federal public defender who last week filed a motion to suppress evidence and essentially postpone the scheduled April 1 trial date.

Henrikson says the motion was made without his approval and he did not want to delay the trial. A judge has not ruled on his request for new representation.

Authorities say Henrikson had business dealings in the oil patch with Doug Carlile, who was shot and killed by an intruder on Dec. 15 at his Spokane, Wash., home.
