Two brothers who worked for their father's bail bond business were killed in Bakersfield while confronting a bail skipper.

Zachary and Brandon Sims, 23 and 26 respectively, worked for Bad Dog Bail Bonds. They were shot to death at a Bakersfield home Thursday night while trying to confront a customer wanted on a drug paraphernalia charge.

Police said 26-year-old Stephen Michael Stewart is considered a suspect in the slayings and remains at large.

Famous bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Stewart's arrest.
