State will not seek death penalty in murder case


News Staff - November 7, 2019

RAPID CITY, S.D. - The Pennington County State's Attorney Office says they will not seek the death penalty in the case against 48-year-old Rochelle Seminole.

Seminole is charged with first degree murder after allegedly intentionally hitting and killing 37-year-old Kimberly Clifford with her car.

The incident occurred at the LaCrosse Street Walmart parking lot.

Pennington County Chief Deputy States Attorney Lara Roetzel says the case simply doesn't meet the mitigating and aggravating circumstances required for the death penalty in South Dakota.

That means if Seminole is convicted on the murder charge she would receive a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.
