LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (KNSI) A joint funeral will be held Saturday for two teens who were killed in a Little Falls home.

Eighteen-year-old Haile Kifer of Little Falls and 17-year-old Nick Brady of Randall were shot multiple times after they apparently broke into Byron Smith's home on Thanksgiving Day.

Authorities say they didn't learn of the deaths until a day later. The Morrison County Sheriff's Office says Smith told investigators he shot the teens as they entered his basement. He's charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

Kifer and Brady were cousins.

Visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m. Friday at Emblom-Brenny Funeral Service, with a prayer service scheduled for 7 p.m. that evening. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at Living Hope Assembly of God Church in Little Falls.
