BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Trial has been postponed in an illegal weapons case against a North Dakota man and former business associate of a Washington state man killed in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme.

James Henrikson, of Watford City, is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was scheduled for trial next week.

A judge put the proceedings on hold after Henrikson filed a motion Thursday to have evidence thrown out in the case. The document was not specific but said it involved weapons that were discovered in a safe.

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. Timothy Suckow, of Spokane, is charged with murder.
