NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The man accused of killing a Nashville musician is free after posting bail following a court appearance Monday.

Chris Ferrell testified as part of his bond hearing that he has received personal threats and that he wore a bulletproof vest when he went to his lawyer's office to surrender earlier this month.

Ferrell is charged with murdering musician Wayne Mills during a dispute at Ferrell's bar in downtown Nashville.

Ferrell says the two were friends and claims he shot Mills in self-defense.

Ferrell's attorney said they are cooperating with police and their private investigator found bullets that the police department hadn't accounted for.

"When that happened, we provided that to the police. We want the police to have all the information in the case. We're finding evidence, and the government indicts the man," said attorney David Raybin.

Ferrell's bond was cut in half to $150,000, and he was released Monday evening. As part of his bond conditions, Ferrell will have to surrender his guns and passport and submit to drug and alcohol testing.
