BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana judge has set bail at $500,000 for a 32-year-old man accused of fatally shooting another man last weekend.

The Billings Gazette reports that James R. Eder has been charged with deliberate homicide in the death of 53-year-old Carl Archer Jr., early Saturday at a hotel Ballantine.

Prosecutors say Archer was found lying face down with a gunshot wound to his head.

Eder made his first court appearance Tuesday before Justice of the Peace David Carter, alongside another man accused of driving him to and from the scene.

Twenty-nine-year-old Charlie Reimers is charged with deliberate homicide by accountability. Reimers is being held on $200,000 bond.

Both men are set to be arraigned later in November.
