Breezy Point Man Charged in Hunter's Death

(AP)  A Breezy Point man is facing more serious charges following the death of a deer hunter last week.

Keven McCormick has already been charged with first degree assault and hunter harassment.  He is accused of pulling a deer stand out from underneath Jerry Benedict during the rifle season.  Benedict was taken to a Fargo hospital where he died last Wednesday.

The two were hunting in Clearwater County near Bagley when the incident happened.  McCormick claims Benedict was trespassing on his property.  Benedict said he was hunting on White Earth Tribal land and had permission to be there.  McCormick says he was extending his business card to Benedict when the tree stand tipped.

The Clearwater County Attorney says more serious charges may be filed once she has a chance to review the medical reports.
