SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Bond has been set at $500,000 cash for a man accused of fatally shooting his mother in Sioux Falls.

Anthony Pritchard appeared in Lincoln County court Wednesday afternoon.

The body of 63-year-old Teresa Cate was found Monday afternoon after police were called to check on a foul odor.

Police Lt. Terrance Matia said at a briefing Wednesday that Cate had died sometime in the past 10 days.

Officers arrested the 36-year-old Pritchard Tuesday evening on probable first-degree murder. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 14.

Matia said Cate was killed in the apartment, but declined to be specific about where on her body she was shot.
