FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors are seeking mineral rights and money from a North Dakota man questioned in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme in Spokane, Washington.
 
James Henrikson is the center of an investigation that involves alleged fraud in the North Dakota oil patch. Authorities say Henrikson did business with Doug Carlile, whom investigators believe was ordered killed in a dispute over oil country transactions.
