Judge Denies Request From SD Murder Suspect

rapid city, sd


A judge is refusing to enforce an early plea agreement reached by prosecutors and a Rapid City man who now is headed to trial on a murder charge.

Twenty-seven-year-old Aaron Jones was scheduled to testify during the trial last summer of another man who was convicted of second-degree murder in the November 2007 death of 44-year-old Tamara Magic.

Prosecutors revoked their promise of immunity when they decided Jones was holding back information. Jones was to plead guilty to not reporting a crime but was instead later indicted on the murder charge.

Jones sought to have the earlier plea agreement enforced but Judge Mary Thorstenson refused. Jones' trial is to begin January 31.
