FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - Attorneys say a dispute over a drug debt ended in the shooting death of a 24-year-old Maine man in June.

New details from the case involving Timothy Danforth were disclosed Wednesday in a Farmington court. Danforth is charged with murder in the death of 24-year-old Michael Reis of New Sharon.

Danforth has been held without bail since his arrest last month. A judge says he will review the police affidavit filed in the case before determining whether bail is an option.

Police say the shooting took place in the early morning hours of June 1 outside Danforth’s father’s house in Wilton. Prosecutors and the defense say Reis got into a confrontation with Danforth, Danforth’s father and Danforth’s fiancee over a debt involving marijuana between Danforth’s father and another person.
