Bond has been set at half a million dollars for a man accused in a Rapid City homicide.
Twenty-eight-year-old Daryl Espinosa is charged with second-degree murder in the death last Friday of 59-year-old Lars Greeley. Authorities allege that the killing happened after the two men had been drinking with others at an apartment complex.
Police say a preliminary autopsy listed the cause of death as blunt force trauma.
The murder charge against Espinosa carries a mandatory life prison sentence. He also faces aggravated assault counts for allegedly threatening two other people with a knife.
