Slaying Case-Warrant Dispute
Two slaying suspects say arrests on reservation were illegal
The Associated Press - June 12, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D. - Two suspects in a Rapid City killing have asked a judge to throw out evidence they say was obtained after they were illegally arrested on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Twenty-two-year-old Maricelo Garcia is charged with murder and 20-year-old Cierra Walks is accused of being an accessory in the fatal shooting of fellow Rapid City man Clinton Farlee following an argument last October.

The attorneys for Garcia and Walks say the arrests were illegal because they were made in Indian Country using state warrants.

Pennington County prosecutors maintain the arrests were lawful because they were executed through a task force coordinated by the U.S. Marshals Service that deputizes local law enforcement under federal law to pursue state fugitives.

The judge is expected to rule in August.
