Smith’s bail reduced to $500,000 with conditions
Morrison County Judge Douglas Anderson granted a reduced bail with conditions for Byron David Smith.
Smith is the Little Falls man accused of shooting and killing teen cousins Haile Kifer and Nick Brady, who allegedly broke into his home Thanksgiving Day.
Anderson granted the request to lower bail with conditions to $500,000 bond or $50,000 cash. Anderson ordered bail without conditions remain at $2 million or $200,000 cash.
Smith’s attorney, Steven Meshbesher, had requested bail be reduced to a “reasonable amount” to $200,000 bond ($20,000 cash) without conditions or $100,000 bond ($10,000 cash) with conditions. See more in Editor Terry Lehrke’s Morrison County Record story.
