FARGO — A Fargo man accused of killing a teenager after a dispute about drug prices is headed to trial next month.
Cass County Judge Wade Webb said 25-year-old Larry Darnell Evans Jr.’s trial will begin April 13, despite a request from prosecutors to continue the case due to some evidence not being finalized by North Dakota's State Crime Laboratory.
Evans is charged with a Class AA felony of murder for the early August death of 18-year-old Cameron Camacho in central Fargo. Court documents stated an argument over marijuana prices escalated into a fight on Aug. 3 outside an apartment building on Westrac Drive.
Evans and Jonathan Patrick Hunt, 32, of Fargo, allegedly joined the fight. Court documents alleged Hunt and Evans beat Camacho before the teen got into a vehicle. Hunt then broke the windows and Evans punched Camacho several times, court documents alleged.
Camacho was taken to a hospital, where he died Aug. 4.
Both Hunt and Evans have denied the allegations. Hunt faces a Class AA felony of accomplice to murder and a Class C felony of terrorizing.
If convicted, both men could face life in prison.
A trial has not been set for Hunt. Both defendants remain in custody at the Cass County Jail.
The defense said Evans has been in jail since August. With the trial being delayed once, the defense argued against pushing it back again.
