Lower bond for Tucson man who says he killed son's suspected molester

5-11-2010 Arizona:

A Tucson dad who says he shot and killed a man in self defense who he suspected was molesting his 3-year-old son had his bail reduced from $1 million to $500,000 Tuesday morning.

Daniel Renteria, 28, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder March 1, one day after he shot Richard Rue Jr., 40, and James "Red" Marschinke, 49, to death in the 5300 block of East 25th Street.

His bond was set at $1 million, but on Tuesday Assistant Pima County Public Defender Paul Skitzki asked Judge Charles Sabalos to either release Renteria to a county monitoring agency until his trial or to reduce his bond.

Skitzki pointed out a grand jury opted to indict Renteria on the less serious charge of manslaughter upon learning Renteria believed Marschinke had been molesting Renteria's son.

"The facts of this specific case clearly indicate my client doesn't pose a risk to the community at large," Skitzki said. ..Source.. Kim Smith Arizona Daily Star
