STANLEY, N.D. (AP) - A judge has ordered a mental evaluation for a Powers Lake man accused of killing his older brother and leaving the body in a camper for nearly six months.

Defense attorney Robert Martin made the request Thursday, saying he is concerned about Aaron Larson’s ability to participate in his own defense.

Judge Richard Hagar ordered Larson to be evaluated at the State Hospital in Jamestown.

Forty-year-old Aaron Larson is accused of killing 46-year-old Terry Larson during a fight in March. Terry Larson’s body was found by a Mountrail County sheriff’s deputy conducting a welfare check.

Aaron Larson could get up to 20 years in prison if convicted of murder.
