Washington County Attorney Peter Orput to assist with Smith homicide case
Washington County Attorney Pete Orput will assist in the prosecution of the Thanksgiving Day homicide in which Byron Smith of Little Falls is charged with the second degree murders of Haile Kifer, 18, and Nick Brady, 17.
Smith, 64, was charged when it was discovered he had shot the alleged burglars multiple times at his home Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22.
The discovery was not made until the following day, Nov. 23, when Smith called a neighbor to ask whether he knew of an attorney. See more in Editor Terry Lehrke’s Morrison County Record story.
