Trial Set For Woman Accused Of Killing Husband
April 20, 2011, 6:52 AM
RAPID CITY, SD -
A South Dakota woman accused of shooting her husband to death is to go on trial in the fall.
Judge Jack Delaney has scheduled the first-degree murder trial for 28-year-old Amanda Kaur to begin Sept. 26.
Prosecutors allege that Kaur last November shot 26-year-old Ira Kaur twice in the head over a six-hour period in their New Underwood home and then tried to make his death look like a suicide.
Ira Kaur was a staff sergeant at Ellsworth Air Force Base.
Prosecutors announced last month that they will not seek the death penalty if Amanda Kaur is convicted.
