BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A detention hearing in North Dakota has been delayed for 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 charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was to appear in U.S. District Court in Bismarck on Friday, but the hearing was rescheduled for Tuesday to give him time to meet with his public defender.

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.
