SPARTA, Wis. (AP) - Bond has been set for two Idaho men accused in the killing of a 43-year-old man in western Wisconsin.

The La Crosse Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1OUYh7F ) Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Todd Ziegler set cash bail at $1 million for 26-year-old Zachary Nathan Davis and $750,000 for 20-year-old Sebastian Martinez on Friday.

Davis is accused of stabbing Derek Magnuson multiple times as Martinez looked on in a Tomah motel room in March. They are also accused of taking Magnuson’s wallet, and using his cash and debit cards.

Davis and Martinez were arrested 17 days later in Tennessee and were extradited to Wisconsin on Thursday. Tennessee authorities dropped theft charges against the pair, which hastened the extradition process.

District Attorney Kevin Chroninger described both defendants as flight risks. The judge agreed.
