One of two men charged in Fargo murder receives 30-year prison sentence
FARGO, N.D.– One of the men charged in the murder of Fargo food truck owner Jay Halvorson has changed his plea to guilty.
A judge sentenced Charles Harris III to 30 years in prison with credit for already serving nearly two years. He’ll be eligible for probation after 25 years. A charge of conspiracy to commit murder was dropped.
Harris and Kareem Byrd were charged in June 2019 after police say they got into an argument with the 38-year-old Halvorson, who owned Texas BBQ, before killing him.
He died from multiple gunshot wounds. Byrd is scheduled to go to trial in late July.
