      Murder trial for Iron River man scheduled to begin in North Dakota

      A jury has been seated in the trial of a Michigan man accused of fatally stabbing his friend at an oil field crew camp in North Dakota.

      Ryan Anderson, of Iron River, Michigan, has pleaded not guilty to murder in the March 2013 stabbing death of Christopher King during what authorities said was an alcohol-fueled dispute at a crew camp between Ray and Tioga, northeast of Williston.

      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.

      KNOX radio reports that opening statements in the case were scheduled Tuesday.

      Anderson could face life in prison without parole if convicted.
