The St. Cloud Times reports (http://on.sctimes.com/Z5KILg ) that search warrants reveal 64-year-old Byron David Smith also made an audio recording of the shootings. Smith is charged with murdering Nick Brady and Haile Kifer at his home in Little Falls.

The warrants allege Smith was sitting in a basement chair when he shot Brady, and that he shot Kifer minutes later. The warrants also say Smith appeared to have blood on his shoes and clothes when authorities arrived.

Authorities learned of the video and audio recordings while searching Smith's home. They subsequently seized several computer memory cards and computer equipment.
