BISMARCK, North Dakota — Trial has been pushed back in an illegal weapons case against a North Dakota man who has been questioned in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme in Spokane, Washington.

James Henrikson, of Watford City, is charged in federal court with being a felon in charge of a firearm. His trial was originally scheduled for July 22.

Authorities say Henrikson had business dealings in the North Dakota oil patch with Doug Carlile, who was shot and killed by an intruder on Dec. 15 at his Spokane home. Henrikson has denied involvement in Carlile's death.

Henrikson was arrested in January. Authorities say they discovered several firearms and a large amount of ammunition at Henrikson's residence in Watford City.

A judge on Monday agreed to reschedule trial for Sept. 23 in Bismarck.
