WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A man accused of fatally stabbing his friend at an oil field crew camp in Tioga has waived extradition from Wisconsin.

Ryan Anderson, of Iron River, Mich., is charged with murder for the March slaying of Christopher King.

Anderson was out on bond when he was arrested Dec. 18 in Vilas County on a drunken driving charge.

The Williston Herald reports a judge revoked his bond because he was to avoid alcohol and not leave the state.

Anderson will be returned to North Dakota and is scheduled to stand trial starting Feb. 10 on the murder charge.

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A Michigan man charged with murder in North Dakota was arrested in Vilas County for violating bond conditions.

Ryan Anderson, of Iron River, Mich. is accused of fatally stabbing his friend, Christopher King, in a March dispute at an oil field crew camp in northwestern North Dakota. He's scheduled for trial in mid-February.

Williams County Sheriff's Detective Caleb Fry says Anderson was arrested Sunday in Wisconsin on suspicion of drunken driving. He was arrested on a North Dakota warrant Wednesday. Authorities were arranging to bring him back to the state.

Fry says it's the second time Anderson has violated his bond conditions. His attorney didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Anderson's bond initially was set at $1 million but later reduced to $500,000 and then to $50,000.
