The former Chisholm police officer accused of shooting one man to death and wounding two others appeared in St. Louis County District Court in Hibbing on Friday looking to get his $3 million bail reduced.

Jason Mark Musburger, 47, is charged with second-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of attempted second-degree murder, harassment or stalking and violation of a restraining order in connection with the incident at Jim's Sports Club Bar and Grill in Chisholm on March 6.

Musburger is accused of shooting five shots, killing 40-year-old Edward J. Walberg Jr., critically injuring

Cale Nelson and wounding Larry Elj after the defendant had a dispute with his ex-wife.

Musburger has hired defense attorney James Perunovich, who has offices in Hibbing and Grand Rapids, to represent him. Perunovich asked Judge Mark Starr to reduce Musburger's bail at Friday's hearing. The court denied the request and the defendant continues to be held in the St. Louis County Jail. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 10.
