DEVILS LAKE, North Dakota — A man accused of killing another man by running him over with his SUV on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation in northeastern North Dakota is now facing three charges.

Lance Robertson was originally charged with murder in the death of 18-year-old Larse Azure Jr., of Fort Totten. An amended complaint adds two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities say Robertson was drinking with five other people in his Dodge Durango early on Dec. 19 when several occupants argued with Robertson about his erratic driving and then left the vehicle when he parked on a reservation road.

One of the witnesses allegedly heard Robertson yell "you're all dead," before he ran over Azure, who was waving his arms at Robertson to stop.

Arraignment for Robertson is scheduled on Wednesday.
