R.I. - A state-licensed medical marijuana grower and user who allegedly killed an intruder at his apartment has not yet been charged with the slaying and may be released on home confinement.

Matthew Salvato is charged with two drug offenses and two weapons offenses, but he is not charged with a crime for shooting 26-year-old Alex Delasnueces of Providence, on April 15 in what the police called a daylight home invasion. Police say the shooting appears to have been in self-defense.

A judge on Thursday said the 22-year-old Salvato apparently had an illegally large amount of marijuana, but agreed to allow his release from prison on $2,500 cash bail if he qualifies for home confinement.

The shooting remains under investigation.
