Delbert Huber, the 82-year-old Paynesville man who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting death last October of Timothy Larson, 43, of Albertville, was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years 7 months in prison, the West Central Tribune reports.

Larson was a special education teacher who lived with his wife and two sons in Otsego, St. Michael Patch reports.

Huber's son, Tim, also is charged with murder in the incident, which occurred on a farm owned by Timothy Larson's father west of Willmar, St. Michael Patch says. The shooting stemmed from a disagreement, in part over $50 and some farm equipment, the online news source reports.
