SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A Sioux Falls man could face the death penalty after a grand jury indicted him in his wife's killing.
A Minnehaha County grand jury indicted 43-year-old Irving Jumping Eagle on charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter in the death of 33-year-old Alicia Jumping Eagle. She was found dead in the couple's Sioux Falls apartment earlier this month.
The Argus Leader reports Irving Jumping Eagle is being held on $1 million bail.
Police allege Irving Jumping Eagle had blood on himself April 3 while at a gas station about 300 miles away near Streeter, North Dakota.
The car he was driving hit a bridge pillar the next morning in Deuel County, in eastern South Dakota. He was taken to a hospital and then jailed in Sioux Falls.
