Watertown HS Students Charged In SF Murder

Watertown HS Students Charged In SF Murder

Two Watertown High School students have been charged with committing a murder in northwest Sioux Falls Monday.

Brian David Anderson, 18, and Trevor Kruthoff, 17, of Watertown have been charged with first degree murder for killing 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau.

Court documents filed Wednesday say the men traveled to Sioux Falls to rob LeBeau after hearing he had $100,000 in his house on North Alaska Avenue.

A police affidavit says Anderson told Kruthoff to shoot both Jordan and his father, 48-year-old Jason LeBeau, after the four got into a scuffle.

When police arrived at the home, they found Jason had been shot in the arm and his son Jordan was found dead in the basement laundry room; police say before being shot, he'd been beaten and duct taped.

Anderson and Kruthoff are both students at Watertown High School.

Principal Michael Butts says their progress and status at the school is protected but he confirms they are students.

“We are all saddened by the events that have taken place. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those involved,” Butts said.

Anderson and Kruthoff face life in prison if they are convicted.
