WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Formal charges have been filed against a Michigan man accused of stabbing to death his roommate at an oil field crew camp in western North Dakota.

Court documents show that 31-year-old Ryan Anderson is charged with attempted murder and murder. They do not list an attorney for him or a hometown.

Anderson is accused of killing 32-year-old Christopher King after an alcohol-fueled dispute early Sunday. Authorities say Anderson drove King from the Capital Lodge crew camp between Ray and Tioga to a Tioga hospital, where King was pronounced dead and Anderson was arrested.

Sgt. Detective Caleb Fry with the Williams County Sheriff's Office tells The Forum newspaper that King was stabbed four times with a hunting knife — twice in the chest and twice in the abdomen.
