WILLISTON, N.D. - Bond has been set at $1 million for a Michigan man accused of stabbing to death his friend and roommate at an oil field crew camp in western North Dakota.
Thirty-one-year-old Ryan Anderson is charged with murdering 32-year-old Christopher King after an alcohol-fueled dispute early Sunday, and attempted murder for allegedly trying to stab another man. Authorities say Anderson and King were longtime friends who moved from Michigan to work in North Dakota's oil fields.
The Forum reports that Anderson appeared in court Tuesday without an attorney. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
The Williston Herald reports that court documents indicate King and others at the crew camp intervened in a fight between Anderson and his girlfriend early Sunday, and Anderson allegedly stabbed King four times.
