MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at three-quarters of a million dollars for an 18-year-old man charged with fatally shooting two fellow employees at a north-central North Dakota hog farm.

KXMB-TV reports Bottineau resident Jeremy Rodriguez Rios appeared for the first time in court Thursday. He is charged with two counts of felony murder in the deaths of 37-year-old Brian Story and 50-year-old Christopher Sluder.

All three worked at Turtle Mountain Pork, a commercial hog operation near Souris, in Bottineau County. Sluder managed the business.

Investigators say Rodriguez Rios admitted to shooting the two men with a handgun on Tuesday and throwing the gun in the sewage pit below the hog barns.

Rodriguez Rios is scheduled to be back in court on April 17.
