LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) - A medical examiner testifying in the case of a Minnesota man who killed two teens when they broke into his home says they were shot a total of nine times, with some shots at close range.

Byron Smith's trial continued Thursday as prosecutors showed autopsy photos of 18-year-old Haile (hay'-lee) Kifer and 17-year-old Nick Brady. Smith faces first-degree premeditated murder charges. He says he shot the teens in self-defense.

Dr. Kelly Mills with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office testified that Brady was shot three times, Kifer six times.

Mills also says Brady tested negative for drugs and alcohol. Kifer's toxicology tests showed the presence of a substance in cough medicine, as well as a marijuana metabolite that Mills says had no hallucinogenic effects.
