LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (KNSI) The home of a Little Falls man held in the shooting deaths of two teenage cousins has been burglarized at least once before.
Byron David Smith told police he shot 18-year-old Haile Kifer and 17-year-old Nicholas Brady during a break-in Thursday. But authorities say his actions exceeded reasonable self-defense and plan to charge him today.
Smith's brother, Bruce Smith, says it was the eighth burglary at Byron Smith's home in recent years.
The only report the Morrison County sheriff's office has is for one break-in on Oct. 27. It shows Byron Smith reported losing cash, gold coins, two guns, photo equipment and a ring.
