MOOREHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A Clay County District Judge today set bail at 2-million dollars in connection with the murder of two people in Moorhead last February. A grand jury has charged a Naytahwaush man with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of two people found after an apartment fire.

Tracy Alan Zornes is also charged with first-degree arson and one count of motor vehicle theft.

The bodies of 20-year-old John Cadotte of Moorhead and 25-year-old Megan Londo of Naytahwaush (NAY'-tah-wash) were found after the apartment fire in Moorhead Feb. 19.

The 38-year-old had been arrested several weeks after the fire on charges in an unrelated case and has remained in custody since then.

The indictment was issued Wednesday in Clay County. Zornes appeared in court this afternoon on the murder and arson charges, as family members of those who died watched.
