Suspect Statements Barred From SD Shooting Trial

RAPID CITY, SD -
A judge has barred from trial some statements given to police by a Rapid City man accused of shooting and critically injuring another man last December.
Twenty-year-old Simon Torres is to stand trial late next week on charges of attempted first-degree murder and an alternate count of aggravated assault in the shooting of 20-year-old Shane Bordeaux at the Lakota Nation Invitational basketball tournament.
Judge Thomas Trimble on Monday granted a defense motion to suppress parts of Torres' interview with police. Defense attorney Matt Skinner had argued that the statements came after his client had made it clear he no longer wished to talk.
Police Detective Bill Parsons says that in the statements, Torres confessed to the crime.
