A judge has refused to lower bond for a Rapid City man accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and kidnapping their two daughters.
The defense for 27-year-old Skye Burnham-Endicott asked Judge Janine Kern to reduce bond from $500,000 to $5,000, but she declined. She scheduled trial to begin Sept. 9.
Authorities allege that Burnham-Endicott beat his girlfriend at her home in February, then took their 1-year-old and 1-month-old girls. He does not have custody rights to the children.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert before finding the children unharmed a short time later.
