WINNER, S.D. (AP) – A man accused of beating another man to death at a tribal housing facility in the South Dakota city of Winner has pleaded not guilty to murder.
Nineteen-year-old Taylor White Buffalo of Winner was indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this month in the April 13 death of Ernest White Buffalo Chief. Court documents show he is charged with second-degree murder and assault with a dangerous weapon.
The Rapid City Journal reports that the case is scheduled for trial in July. White Buffalo could face life in prison if convicted.
