BOULDER, Colorado — A judge has increased bail to $1 million for a teenager accused of beating a 30-year-old developmentally disabled man to death in his Boulder apartment.

The Daily Camera reports ( ) 18-year-old Luke Pelham was arrested Tuesday for failing to comply with his initial bond, which stipulated that he could not be outside of his home except while under the supervision of an approved adult, and he could only be out in the community for up to two hours a day.

Pelham and 18-year-old Austin Holford are accused of killing Aaron Tuneberg while trying to steal his video game console March 31. Police say Tuneberg suffered serious head injuries when he was beaten with an aluminum baseball bat and a golf club.

He died a week after the assault.
