Paroled Inmate Held on $1 Million Cash Bond

Paroled Inmate Held on $1 Million Cash Bond
SIOUX FALLS, SD - A recenly paroled South Dakota State Penitentiary inmate's suspected murder and crime spree that spanned three states could have eventually stretched more than half of the United States. 41 year-old James McVay was on parole just one day before he disappeared from a community transition center at the prison.

Court papers say McVay candidly talked about his plan to cross the country committing crimes.

He said "it didn't really matter who or when, but [he] was going to kill people whenever the opportunity arose," according the report.

McVay waived his rights and continued to tell police about the plan he had been working on for two-years. It all started with the murder of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein in her Sioux Falls townhome.

McVay slipped under her garage door early on Saturday, July 2. He told police he walked into the house and slit her throat before taking her 2007 Buick Lucerne.

Police tracked McVay using the OnStar GPS system and he was arrested in Madison, Wisconsin after a pursuit and brief standoff.

He now faces two counts of first degree murder and four first degree burglary charges. He is still being held in Wisconsin on a $1,000,000 cash bond.
