BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Three Affiliated Tribes Business Council says it has not been involved with a former business associate of a Spokane, Wash., man killed in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme.

Thirty-four-year-old James Henrikson was arrested Saturday in Mandan on a weapons charge. He has not been charged in the killing of Doug Carlile, who was shot by an intruder Dec. 15 at his Spokane home.

Authorities say in court documents that Henrikson is under investigation for allegedly defrauding a company owned by Three Affiliated Tribes Chairman Tex Hall. The tribe’s Business Council issued a statement Wednesday saying the tribe itself hasn’t had any dealings with Henrikson.

Hall has declined comment on the matter through his spokeswoman, Glenda Embry. Cell phone mailboxes for Embry and Hall were full and not accepting messages Wednesday.
