EASTON, Md.- A St. Michael's teen, charged with second-degree murder in the death of a friend, is being held on $500,000 bail.

Seventeen-year-old Matthew Mikowski was charged as an adult in the June 10 death of Samuel Cross.

At a hearing on Tuesday afternoon, Judge William S. Horne set several conditions if the suspect is released on bail.

According to the Talbot County State's Attorney's Office, those conditions include home confinement with electronic monitoring, no contact with the victim's family, no use of the Internet or social media and Mikowski must also surrender his passport to the court.

Mikowski will not be released on bond until the Department of Corrections is satisfied that all of the conditions of home monitoring are met.

On June 25, a Talbot County grand jury indicted Mikowski on charges on second-degree murder.  He's also charged with reckless endangerment, second-degree assault and four counts of distribution of LSD.

The Maryland State Police State Apprehension Team took the teen into custody on Tuesday afternoon. Mikowski was being held at the Berks County Jail in Pennsylvania pending extradition proceedings. He returned to Maryland where he was officially charged.

He is being held at the Talbot County Detention Center in Easton.
