A judge set bail at $1.5 million cash for a teenager charged in a fatal shooting at a shopping mall in eastern Wisconsin.

Dezman Ellis, of Oshkosh, made his first appearance Monday in Outagamie County Court on charges of first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree recklessly endangering safety. He had been extradited on Friday from Iowa, where he fled after the Jan. 31 shooting.

The 17-year-old Ellis is accused of killing 19-year-old Jovanni Frausto at the Fox River Mall in Grand Chute on Jan. 31 during an argument over a girl.
