WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) — An 82-year-old man will likely spend the rest of his life behind bars for fatally shooting a teacher at a farm in Kandiyohi (kan-dih-YOH'-heye) County.

Delbert Huber was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years, 7 months for fatally shooting 43-year-old Timothy Larson, of Albertville. The shooting happened last October after Larson ordered Huber and his son, 45-year-old Timothy Huber, to remove their farm equipment from his father's farm in rural Belgrade.

The elderly Huber earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and admitted he shot and killed Larson.

The West Central Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/d5o7d6l ) reports Judge Michael Thompson sentenced Huber to the maximum allowed. His son faces a first-degree murder indictment.
