In a Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012 photo, Rachel Brady, sister of Nick Brady, and cousin of Haile Kifer, who were shot and killed during an alleged break in on Thanksgiving Day, speaks about her brother to a crowd who gathered for a vigil in Little Falls, Minn. Byron David Smith, 64, of Little Falls, told police he shot Kifer, 18, and Brady, 17, during a break-in Thursday. But authorities said his actions exceeded reasonable self-defense and planned to charge him Monday with second-degree murder.
