New Charges Against Suspect in Beating Death, Victim Identified
The Minnehaha County State's Attorney has added additional charges to a man accused of beating another man to death at the Union Gospel Union on Sunday, October 30, 2016.
"The victim died," Police Spokesman Sam Clemens told us.
"After reviewing the material in the case---the office of the State's Attorney has charged the suspect with second degree murder and manslaughter."
Clemens says 61-year-old Robert Allen Petersen, a transient, suffered numerous injuries.
"The injuries were pretty severe as the beating took place. It really didn't sound good from the beginning once he got to the hospital. It took a few days. But, he died from those injuries."
Clemens identified the suspect as 31-year-old Daniel Murillo, a Sioux Falls transient.
