BISMARCK, N.D. - 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.
