James Henrikson, a former business associate of Doug Carlile, who was killed in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme faces a detention hearing in North Dakota.
Henrikson, 34, was arrested Saturday in Mandan on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He has been appointed a public defender and is to appear in U.S. District Court in Bismarck on Friday.
Court documents show Henrikson had business dealings in the North Dakota oil patch with Doug Carlile, who was shot by an intruder Dec. 15 at his Spokane home.
Fifty-year-old Timothy Suckow, of Spokane, has been arrested for investigation of first-degree murder in Carlile's death. Henrikson has not been charged in the slaying.
