Man held without bond in Williston homicide case
WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A 46-year-old Idaho man brought from Montana to face
murder and reckless endangerment charges in Williston is being held without bond.
The Williston Herald reports that Judge David Nelson decided Monday to hold Jonathan
Horvath for a preliminary hearing and arraignment on April 23.
Horvath is accused of shooting 28-year-old Derrick Siegel of Williston March
16 on a sidewalk outside the Heartbreakers bar following arguments. Police in an
affidavit say that two or three shots were fired, with three spent 9 millimeter
casings found at the scene.
Horvath was captured in Billings, Mont., on March 18.
At Monday's hearing in Williston, Horvath defended fleeing the scene, saying
he wanted to make sure his dog was taken somewhere safe before he came back to
fight the charges.
