An Arizona judge has dismissed some charges against an Otter Tail County man accused of threatening to kill people from jail.

An Arizona judge has dismissed some charges against an Otter Tail County man accused of threatening to kill people from jail.

Michael Alan Burris was charged in Arizona with Conspiracy to Commit murder, after authorities say he tried to hire a hit man to kill people in Arizona and Fergus falls while in jail.

By dismissing those charges, the extradition process to Minnesota can go forward. Burris is charged, along with his son, Michael Kyle Burris, in the 2012 shooting death of Scott Burris.

Arizona authorities may refile conspiracy charges against Michael Alan Burris at a later date.
