'Prejudicial' statements from Carlile's family ordered withheld in Henrikson murder trial


A statement allegedly made by Doug Carlile to his family before his death in December 2013 identifying James Henrikson as his potential killer won’t be heard by jurors, and its publicity could once again move a trial in the murder-for-hire case.

U.S. District Court Judge Salvador Mendoza ruled Tuesday that a statement made by Carlile’s son to Spokane investigators - that his father suspected Henrikson might kill him over North Dakota oil business dealings - may not be used in court by prosecutors when a trial begins next month. The statement had been included in court documents charging Timothy Suckow as the triggerman in Carlile’s death at his South Hill home in what originally appeared to be a home invasion robbery gone awry.
