(AP) An autopsy for a Nashville-based singer-songwriter who was killed by a bar owner shows Wayne Mills was shot in the back of the head.


Bar owner Chris Ferrell has told police he fatally shot Mills in self-defense early on Nov. 23. Ferrell says the two got into an argument over the musician smoking a cigarette in a no-smoking area of Ferrell's Pit and Barrel bar in downtown Nashville.


According to the autopsy, Mills died from the gunshot wound, although he also had two broken ribs and bruises and scrapes. The report said there was no evidence the gun was fired at close range.


Ferrell is charged with second degree murder and is free on $150,000 bond. A call and email to Ferrell's attorney late Friday afternoon were not immediately returned.
