LAKE CHARLES - A judge has refused to lower the bond of a man accused of killing a Lake Charles pastor in front of his congregation.

53-year-old Woodrow Karey remains in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on $1 million bond. He is accused of shooting Ronald C. Harris, pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center, twice with a shotgun during a revival service at the church on the night of Sept. 27. He is charged with second-degree murder.

Karey's wife filed a rape complaint against Harris two days before the shooting.

Authorities say there was a relationship between Karey's wife and Harris, but did not say whether it was consensual.
