BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) - Richard Santee, the man charged with attempted murder in the death of his nephew, was released on bond on Wednesday.

He had to turn over his passport because prosecutors told the judge he could be flight risk. he also was forced to turn over his guns in case he tried to hurt himself before the trial.

Investigators say Thanksgiving night he and his nephew shot at each other at his home on the Bray's Island Plantation.
