Homicide Suspect Released From Prison Days Before Crime

Homicide Suspect Released From Prison Days Before Crime
James McVay

SIOUX FALLS, SD - The South Dakota Department of Corrections says a man suspected of killing a Sioux Falls woman over the weekend was just paroled on Thursday of last week.  James McVay had been serving time for grand theft and a 2009 escape.  Tuesday afternoon, Minnehaha County authorities filed first-degree murder and burglary charges against McVay.

Saturday afternoon, the niece of Maybelle Schein found the 75-year-old woman dead in her Sioux Falls town home. After realizing her vehicle was missing, Sioux Falls Police contacted OnStar to help them locate the vehicle. It was tracked to Madison, Wisconsin, and authorities there arrested James McVay following a chase.

The 41-year-old was released from the South Dakota State Penitentiary on Thursday. Rather than letting him out on his own, officials had him move into Unit C, a minimum security unit outside of the Penitentiary's perimeter fence, to take part in the Community Transition Program. It gives parolees a place to live to help get back into society.

When he didn't return on Friday, prison officials contacted local law enforcement and asked for their help locating McVay.

At this point, Sioux Falls Police haven't released a timeline for when Schein was killed.
