Thirty-one-year-old Ryan Anderson is accused of stabbing to death 32-year-old Christopher King after an alcohol-fueled dispute March 17. Both men came from Michigan.

Defense attorney Nicole Foster asked that Anderson's bond be reduced to $25,000, saying Anderson stabbed King in self-defense. Prosecutor Nathan Madden said Anderson has a history of failing to appear for court.

Judge David Nelson kept bond for Anderson at $1 million.
