$250,000 Bond For Dell Rapids Men Allegedly Connected to SF Murder

$250,000 Bond For Dell Rapids Men Allegedly Connected to SF Murder
Douglas Scholten | Kevin Rice


Prosecutors say two Dell Rapids men planned a robbery that led to a murder in a Northwest Sioux Falls home on Monday. In court on Wednesday, a prosecutor for the Minnehaha County State's Attorney said 20-year-old Kevin Rice and 20-year-old  Douglas Scholten recruited 18-year-old Brian David Anderson and 17-year-old Trevor Kruthoff to rob 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau. The situation apparently escalated, and led to LeBeau's death. Anderson and Kruthoff are charged with first degree murder, attempted murder, and first degree robbery.

Bond has been set for $250,000 for both Rice and Scholten. The two men, who were arrested on Tuesday, face first degree robbery, first degree burglary, and aggravated assault charges. They are also accused of providing the gun that killed LeBeau. In court, it was revealed Scholten told investigators he loaded the gun, but said the weapon belonged to Rice. Scholten also reportedly accused Rice of being a drug dealer. Prosecutors say the men pose a, "significant threat to the community."

Rice was out on bond for a possession of a controlled substance when the shootings, which also injured LeBeau's 48-year-old father, occurred.

In court, Rice's attorney says her client's role in the shootings is best described as a "lack of involvement." She pointed out that Rice and Scholten are not facing murder charges and were not at the house when LeBeau was killed. Both defense attorneys also pointed out that the two men willingly surrendered to police during a Dell Rapids search, and have cooperated during the investigation.
