BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man and former business associate of a Washington state man killed in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme has been ordered to remain in prison on an illegal weapons charge.

Thirty-four-year-old James Henrikson, of Watford City, is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Court documents indicate he’s also under investigation for allegedly defrauding a company owned by Three Affiliated Tribes Chairman Tex Hall.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles Miller on Tuesday ordered Henrikson detained for further proceedings.

Court documents show Henrikson had business dealings in the North Dakota oil patch with Doug Carlile, who was shot and killed by an intruder Dec. 15 at his Spokane, Wash., home. Fifty-year-old Timothy Suckow, of Spokane, is charged with murder.

Henrikson has not been charged in Carlile’s slaying.
