Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV) - New and shocking information tonight from Otter Tail County authorities who are waiting for a man to be transported from Arizona to face charges for murdering his nephew in Elizabeth more than a year ago.

Drew Trafton/New Charges: “We have learned 65 year old Michael Alan Burris is facing new charges in Arizona for making death threats from jail and trying to hire a hit man to kill people he considers an enemy - in both Arizona and Fergus Falls.”

This may be behind the delay in transporting him back to Minnesota to face charges for murdering his newphew - Scott Burris.

Michael Alan Burris' son - Michael Kyle Burris is also charged in the case - he's already back in Otter Tail County.

The pair is accused of shooting Scott Burris in the head and killing him over a drug debt.

The governor of Arizona has issued a warrant for Burris' return - we'll keep you posted on these new charges.
