PIERRE, SD -
A North Dakota man has been arrested for a killing in South Dakota.
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley and Hamlin County State's Attorney Jeromy Pankratz said 43-year-old Steven Helm, of Bismarck, North Dakota, was arrested early Tuesday on a murder charge in the death of 33-year-old Jesse James Gisi of Watertown.
Authorities said Gisi died of a single gunshot wound. His body was found Sunday in a rural area in east central South Dakota.
Authorities declined to release details about the discovery of the body.
Helm was arrested in Bismarck after investigators identified him as a person of interest in the case. Details about the relationship of the two men were not released.
Pankratz said Helm will have to be brought from Bismarck to Hamlin County to make his initial court appearance.
