CANTON — Double murder suspect Adam W. Smith appeared in St. Lawrence County Court for a second bail hearing after his defense attorney filed a writ of habeas corpus alleging the bail conditions set last month were excessive.

Smith, 46, who has resided in both the Gouverneur and Lake Placid areas, is accused of murdering 72-year-old Ronald E. “Huck” Durham on Feb. 11 in Gouverneur and 67-year-old William M. “Bill” Freeman in Rossie on March 1.
