RAPID CITY, SD -
A suspect in two Rapid City casino robbery attempts who allegedly dyed her hair to try to elude authorities has been denied furlough to attend a funeral.
Twenty-six-year-old Julia Peters is accused of using a knife and a machete to try to rob the two casinos in a four-day span in early July. She was arrested later in the month and jailed on $50,000 bond
Peters' attorney on Tuesday asked Judge Mary Thorstenson to release her from jail for five hours on Thursday so she could attend a relative's funeral. Thorstenson refused, saying Peters was too much of a flight risk.
