Judge refuses request from Rapid City murder suspect to lower bond from $1 million to $20,000


RAPID CITY, South Dakota — A judge has refused to lower bond for a man charged in the fatal Memorial Day shooting of his cousin in Rapid City.

The attorney for 20-year-old Sean Marshall had asked that Judge Heidi Linngren reduce bond from $1 million to $20,000, but she denied the request on Wednesday.

Marshall is accused of killing 22-year-old Charles Metcalf on May 25. He also faces drug charges.

Authorities say Marshall admitted to shooting Metcalf but also said he feared for his life because Metcalf had come at him with broken glass. Police say Metcalf was shot in the back multiple times.
