Suspect In Slaying Of Homeless Man Arraigned
Eugene Martin

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A homeless man accused of bludgeoning a campmate to death with a shovel has been arraigned in Minnehaha County Court.

Forty-three-year-old Eugene Martin is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and aggravated assault in the May 3 death of Robert Thunderhawk.

The 43-year-old Thunderhawk's body was found in a wooded area in northeast Sioux Falls that residents say is popular among the homeless. Police say Martin and Thunderhawk got in a drunken disagreement that turned deadly.

Martin pleaded not guilty to the charges and is being held on $500,000 bond.

A second suspect, 52-year-old Clint Cottonwood, has been charged with simple assault in the death.

Martin's pretrial conference is scheduled for July 11, to be followed by a July 23 jury trial.
