Judge Denies Defense Request For Mistrial In Little Falls Homeowner Case

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) - A judge has rejected a defense request for a mistrial in the case of a Minnesota homeowner who shot and killed two teenagers who broke into his home.

The St. Cloud Times reports defense attorney Steven Meshbesher made the request Tuesday at Byron Smith's trial.

Smith, of Little Falls, is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the slayings of 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer on Thanksgiving Day 2012.

Meshbesher told Judge Douglas Anderson that the judge's pretrial rulings about what jurors can't hear about the teens have severely restricted his case.

The defense also objected to the prosecutor's comment to a TV station that he would be willing to try the case in front of 12 board members of the National Rifle Association.

The judge denied the motions.
