Henrikson wins effort to have evidence used against him

Posted: Updated:
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man who's been questioned in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme in Spokane, Washington, has won his fight for evidence to be used against him in a separate illegal weapons case.

James Henrikson was arrested for being a felon in possession of firearms after investigators found guns in a safe in his Watford City home. His lawyer argued the warrant didn't authorize police to contact the safe manufacturer for the lock combination, and the evidence should be excluded.

Henrikson wants to go to trial quickly. He requested a new attorney and asked a judge to withdraw the motion to suppress evidence. The judge agreed.

Henrikson did business in North Dakota's oil patch with Doug Carlile, who was shot and killed by an intruder in his Spokane home in December.

Government selling home connected to Henrikson

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. attorney's office plans to sell a home connected to a man who has been questioned in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme in Spokane, Washington, and is awaiting trial on weapons charges in North Dakota.The case centers on James Henrikson, who had business dealings in North Dakota's oil patch with a man who was killed by an intruder in his Spokane home. Henrikson told police he was upset with the victim but denied any involvement in his death.

Prosecutors have brought forfeiture action on a Watford City home owned by Henrikson's wife and another man, Ryan Olness. The home will be sold for $440,000 unless the government gets a higher offer.

A lawyer for Olness says the property hasn't been widely advertised and might not bring a fair price.
