Prosecutors told KSTP-TV that Michelle McGill, 49, was found shot 10 times outside her Apple Valley home last July.

Pryor and Selmon reportedly traded gunshots after they parked side-by-side in her driveway. McGill became caught in the crossfire while in her vehicle.

Selmon told detectives he'd broken off a long relationship with McGill and went to her home to pick up some personal possessions.

Police say they arrived to find Pryor trying to comfort his mother. Selmon reportedly drove to a nearby hospital, because he had gunshot wounds to his head.

Both suspects had separate bond hearings late last week, according to the Twin Cities Pioneer-Press.

Pryor was held on a $100,000 bond, awaiting a May 3 hearing.

Selmon's bond is $1 million, with his next court appearance scheduled for May 15.
