GRAND FORKS (AP) - A jury has found a Michigan man guilty of stabbing his friend to death at an oilfield crew camp in North Dakota.
Ryan Anderson, of Iron River, Michigan, was convicted Wednesday of killing 32-year-old Christopher King, also of Iron River, in March 2013.
Authorities say the attack was part of an alcohol-fueled dispute at a crew camp between Ray and Tioga, northeast of Williston. A defense attorney argued that Anderson had acted in self-defense.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison without parole.
Anderson's trial was moved to Grand Forks after his attorney argued he couldn't get a fair trial in Williams County because of extensive news coverage of the case.
