TOOELE, Utah --One teen police say connected with the stabbing death of a Tooele teen bailed out of jail Monday after a judge granted a bail reduction.

Larry Beach, 20, and Roy Coffey, 19, appeared in a Tooele courtroom on homicide charges related to the death of Jessie Horowitz April 26.

Coffey, of Tooele, was charged with accessory to homicide and obstruction justice in connection with the stabbing.

Coffey received a bail reduction from $50,000 to $5,000 and was ordered to wear a GPS tracking device.

Based on some of the preliminary information received from the prosecutions office, it appears Coffey was not directly involved in the stabbing, said Coffey’s lawyer Stephen Howard.

Beach, of San Antonio, Texas, got into a fight with Jessie Horrowitz, 17, at Stansbury Park Elementary on April 26 in front of a crowd of teens and young adults, according to charging documents.

Beach is charged with homicide and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors say Beach stabbed the teen several times in the chest, killing him.

Beach’s bail remains at $1 million and was ordered back to court June 3.
