Prosecution Rests In SD Death Penalty Trial

Prosecution Rests In SD Death Penalty Trial
James McVay

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The prosecution has rested in the death penalty trial of a man who killed a South Dakota hospice nurse in her Sioux Falls home.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for 43-year-old James McVay, who pleaded guilty but mentally ill to murder for the 2011 stabbing of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein. McVay said he killed Schein and stole her car as part of a plot to drive to Washington and assassinate President Barack Obama. He got as far as Wisconsin before being arrested.

Defense attorney Amber Eggert says McVay has a history of mental illness and his life should be spared, with a sentence of life in prison without parole.

The sentencing trial is to resume Tuesday. McVay has not indicated whether he will testify in his own defense.

Ben Dunsmoor was in the courtroom on Thursday while a two-hour video played for a Minnehaha County jury. Read the details from inside the courtroom.
