PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) -- A man accused of killing his next-door neighbor in Port Angeles during a violent argument was charged Thursday with murder.

Bail for 58-year-old Bobby J. Smith was set at $1 million. He's accused of shooting 63-year-old Robert Fowler in June at Smith's home.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/ojjeGd) Smith will be arraigned Oct. 21 in Clallam County Superior Court. Smith told police the shooting was self-defense.

He had moved to Texas during the investigation and was arrested last month in the Amarillo area.
