Story By Associated Press


VILAS COUNTY - Deputies in Vilas County arrested a Michigan man charged with murder in North Dakota.

Ryan Anderson of Iron River, Michigan was picked up for violating bond conditions.

He's accused of fatally stabbing his friend, Christopher King, in a March dispute at an oil field crew camp in northwestern North Dakota.

He's scheduled for trial in mid-February.

Williams County Sheriff's Detective Caleb Fry says Anderson was arrested Sunday in Vilas County on suspicion of drunken driving.

Authorities in North Dakota are arranging to bring Anderson back to that state.

Fry says it's the second time Anderson has violated his bond conditions.

Anderson's bond initially was set at 1-million dollars, but later reduced to 50-thousand.
