Bond Set at $1 Million for Murder Suspect

October 3, 2013

Cedric Chappell

Cedric Chappell, a Valley City State University student accused of killing one man and injuring another in Minneapolis last weekend, did not waive extradition to Minnesota Wednesday, but instead asked for an extradition hearing.
Judge Jay Schmitz set Chappell's bond at $1 million at the request of Barnes County State's Attorney Lee Grossman at the recommendation of the State of Minnesota. Grossman explained to the court that not only did he consider Chappell a danger to the community, but Chappell may also be in danger from those who may seek retribution.
Chappell was accused of fatally shooting Willie J. Smith, III, and wounding another man during an altercation outside a Minneapolis, Minn. nightclub early Sunday morning. He was arrested by the Valley City Police Department without incident Tuesday on the VCSU campus where Chappell is a junior studying health science and a member of the football team. After his arrest, Chappell was suspended from VCSU.
Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Valley City Police Department at (701) 845-3110.
