Williams County authorities say they've arrested a man in connection with the stabbing death of another man at an oil crew camp in Williston.

The Williams County Sheriff's Office says it responded at about 4 a.m. Sunday to a report of a stabbing at the Capitol Lodge man camp, east of Ray.

Authorities say the victim, 32-year-old Christopher King, was transported by private vehicle to the Tioga Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect was apprehended at the Tioga hospital.

Charges have not been filed.

Police say both the victim and the suspect are from Michigan.


This follows a shooting fatality Saturday morning, also in Williston.

The suspect in this case however is still at large.

Williston police say 28-year-old Derrick Spiegel of Williston died at Mercy Hospital after he was shot outside a downtown bar in Williston around one o'clock Saturday morning.

Arrest warrants have been issued for the alleged suspect, 46-year-old Jonathan Peter Horvath.

Police say Horvath has a noticeable tattoo of a spider on the left side of his neck.

Horvath recently moved to the Williston area from Sandpoint, ID.

Authorities have reason to believe that Horvath has left the Western North Dakota area.
