WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A judge has refused to lower bond for one of the six suspects in the slaying of a Williston-area hobby rancher, saying there is probable cause to believe Jeremy Weyrauch was involved in the death of Jack Sjol. Defense attorney Nicole Foster sought to reduce Weyrauch's bond from $1 million to $25,000.
She said during a court hearing Friday that Weyrauch passed a polygraph test, and that one of the questions was whether he had shot the 58-year-old Sjol. Prosecutor Nathan Madden said another of the suspects said during a phone call in prison that Weyrauch pulled the trigger first, and that Weyrauch's only alibi for the day Sjol died was that he was ``doing drugs and stealing stuff.'' Weyrauch faces a murder conspiracy charge.
