Trial Involving Grisly Murder Of Woman Wraps Up

WATERTOWN, S.D. – Testimony is wrapping up today in the murder trial of a Watertown man.

She was found deceased in her apartment on North Broadway in Watertown.

She’s been stabbed and cut 16 times before she was decapitated.

Peacemaker has admitted walking her home from a downtown bar after a night of drinking, but he says he was only there for about 20 minutes before leaving.

His defense counsel made a motion during trial seeking an acquittal due to a lack of evidence, but the judge denied that motion.
