BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - A Bismarck man facing a murder charge is set for trial next February.

Police arrested 27-year-old Benjamin Williams in October. They claim evidence linked him to the Oct. 4 shooting death of 39-year-old Christopher Sebastian. Friends of the victim say Sebastian enjoyed farming, fishing, camping and the Minnesota Vikings. Police have not disclosed a possible motive for the crime.

After a hearing this week, Judge Douglas Bahr set trial for Feb. 21 - 24.

Williams is in custody on a $1 million bond.
