Horvath was on trial in Wahpeton, where the case was moved because of extensive media coverage in Williston. He's accused of killing 28-year-old Derrick Spiegel of Williston in March 2013.

Authorities say Spiegel was killed on a sidewalk outside a strip club following an argument.

The reckless endangerment charge stems from Horvath allegedly firing into the bar. No one was hurt.
