A dual U.S.-Canadian citizen wanted for the shooting death of a Bismarck man was booked into the Burleigh Morton Detention Center at 1 p.m. Saturday. No bond amount or court date has been set.

Earl Howard, 41, of Belwood, Ontario, was brought to Bismarck after he waived extradition in a court hearing in Michigan Friday. He is charged with murder, arson, murder conspiracy, arson conspiracy and conspiracy to tamper with evidence in connection with the death of Chad Entzel, 42.

Entzel was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in the bedroom of a Bismarck home on Jan. 2 after authorities responded to reports of a fire.

Entzel's wife, Nikki Entzel, 38, is also charged with three conspiracy counts in connection with her husband’s death. She is in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $500,000 cash bail.
