A northwestern Minnesota man who spent 17 years in prison for murder is again a wanted man.

Joshua Carl Hendrickson, 40, was released last year but is now a "wanted fugitive" in relation to an assault, according to the Minnesota Department of Corrections. 

There are no details about the assault, but the Karlstad resident has been considered fugitive since last week. 

According to Forum News Service, his murder conviction stems from a 1999 house party in Halma, where Hendrickson stabbed two men – one of them fatally – after a fight over "the volume of the radio."

The Forum says he was paroled in November 2017 after serving two thirds of a nearly 24-year sentence. 

Court records show he was convicted of 2nd degree murder, listed as "without intent," for the 1999 stabbing. 

Anyone with information on Hendrickson's whereabouts is encouraged to call the Department of Corrections' 24-hour tip line at 651-603-0026, or notify Crime Stoppers of Minnesota.
