MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A million-dollar bond has been set for a Madison man accused of killing another man he was living with.
24-year-old Edgar Salinas-Leal was charged with first-degree intentional homicide soon after he allegedly shot and killed 38-year-old Darrell Ballweg on February 3rd.
Additional charges were filed Monday in Dane County -- including reckless endangerment, vehicle theft, criminal damage, and intimidating a victim.
Salinas-Leal is due back in court a week from Tuesday.
Prosecutors said an argument over food escalated into a fight between Salinas-Leal and Ballweg -- and after he shot Ballweg, Salinas-Leal broke a TV and a cellphone before taking the keys to a vehicle owned by Ballweg's wife.
Prosecutors said the defendant's uncle bought a van, and was planning to take the family to Texas a couple days after the shooting.
In court Monday, defense laywer Jessa Nicholson said Ballweg armed himself with a knife and made threats before the shooting incident.
