Pierre teen accused in killing can get out of jail

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Pierre teen accused of killing a classmate will be released from jail.

KCCR-AM reports a judge granted a defense request Monday to release 17-year-old Braiden McCahren on bond.

Authorities say 10 percent of the $250,000 bond already has been posted, so he could get out of jail Monday.

McCahren pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges in the shooting death last Dec. 18 of 16-year-old Dalton Williams in McCahren's home.

McCahren was 16 and has been in custody without bond for more than a year.

He'll be under house arrest at his grandparents' home in Vermillion and will attend high school classes online offered by an alternative school in Vermillion.

McCahren's still waiting to find out whether he'll be tried as a juvenile or adult.
