A man accused in a fatal shooting during a botched robbery made an appearance in Supreme Court in St. John's on Thursday.

Lyndon Butler is one of two men accused of second-degree murder in the death of Nick Winsor in July 2011. His co-accused is Phillip Pynn.

Police allege Winsor, Butler and Pynn went to a house on Portugal Cove Road in attempt to rob the homeowner.

But Winsor was shot outside the house during the incident.

Butler has been out on bail since March of last year.

During Thursday's hearing, the person who had put up a $25,000 surety for Butler, asked to withdraw, and the judge agreed.

Butler, who is now back behind bars, must now find someone else to put up the money.
