Man Charged With Killing Two Teens Seeking Lower Bail

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota man accused of killing two teens who broke into his home on Thanksgiving is asking a judge to reduce his bail.

The St. Cloud Times reports 64-year-old Byron David Smith is seeking to reduce the $2 million bail set by Morrison County District Judge Douglas Anderson. The judge set the high bail when Smith made his first court appearance on charges that he murdered 18-year-old Haile Kifer and 17-year-old Nick Brady.

A hearing has been scheduled for Monday to argue the motion, which was filed by Smith's attorney, Steven Meshbesher. Smith is charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

Authorities say Smith went beyond what's permitted for self-defense when he shot the cousins multiple times, including after they had been incapacitated, at his home near Little Falls.
