Two Arrested In Death, Arson Case
SIOUX FALLS, SD - We're learning more about how a body found in Iowa and a house fire in Sioux Falls are connected.

Two Sioux Falls men are expected to appear in court Friday afternoon, facing kidnapping and robbery charges in the death of 27-year-old Joseph Cynkar.

Benjamin Carter and Payton Strum tried to rob Cynkar at a home on East Hermosa Drive in Sioux Falls on Monday. Cynkar was assaulted during the robbery.

Police say the suspects then drove Cynkar in his own pickup to a wooded area east of Lake Alvin where his body was discovered on Tuesday.

Preliminary autopsy results show that Cynkar died of suffocation and a blow to the head.

Police say Strum also set fire to the house at some point. He's also facing a charge of first-degree arson.
