MADISON, SD -
An affidavit suggests a 50-year-old grudge between a high school sports star and a classmate may have led a 73-year-old Watertown man to shoot and kill a retired teacher in the eastern South Dakota city of Madison.
Carl Ericsson made his first appearance in court Thursday and was denied bond. He's accused of shooting retired Madison High School teacher and track coach Norman Johnson after Johnson answered the door at his house on Tuesday evening.
Court records say Johnson's wife, Barbara, found him lying on the floor and saw a man walking to a dark sedan parked outside.
An autopsy says that Johnson died of two gunshot wounds to the face.
