Thu, 07 Aug 2014 07:21:55 GMT — A jury has found a Michigan man guilty of stabbing his friend to death at an oilfield crew camp in North Dakota. WDAZ-TV reports ( http://bit.ly/1y6APdt) that Ryan Anderson, of Iron River, Michigan, was convicted Wednesday of killing 32-year-old Christopher King, also of Iron River, in March 2013. Anderson had pleaded not guilty to murder. 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. Anderson faces life in prison without parole. Anderson's trial earlier was moved to the eastern North Dakota city of Grand Forks after his attorney successfully argued he couldn't get a fair trial in Williams County because of extensive news coverage of the case.
