NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Nashville judge on Thursday agreed to further reduce the bond of downtown bar owner Chris Ferrell.

Ferrell is charged with second degree murder for the shooting death of country singer Wayne Mills last November.

Ferrell has admitted to shooting Mills, but says he did so in self defense.

He bonded out of jail on December 15.  A judge on Thursday reduced his bond by another 2%.  His bond was previously lowered from $300,000 to $150,000.

Investigators say Ferrell shot Mills after the two got into an argument at Ferrell's bar the Pit and Barrel on 2nd Avenue South.

Mills leaves behind a wife and son.
