Jury deliberations are underway in the trial of a Michigan man accused of fatally stabbing his friend at an oil field crew camp in North Dakota.
WDAZ-TV reports that deliberations in the trial of Ryan Anderson, of Iron River, Michigan, began Tuesday after jurors heard closing arguments.
Anderson has pleaded not guilty to murder in the March 2013 stabbing death of Christopher King during what authorities said was an alcohol-fueled dispute at a crew camp between Ray and Tioga, northeast of Williston.
Anderson's trial earlier was moved to the eastern North Dakota city of Grand Forks after his attorney successfully argued he couldn't get a fair trial in Williams County because of extensive news coverage of the case.
Anderson could face life in prison without parole if convicted.
