Jury Indicts MN Man For Threatening SD Governor

Jury Indicts MN Man For Threatening SD Governor
William Becker

PIERRE, SD -

A Hughes County grand jury has indicted a Minnesota man for making threats against South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and his family.

53-year-old William Becker, of Monticello, Minn., was indicted on two counts Tuesday. One count was for threatening Daugaard and the other was for threatening Daugaard's family.

Authorities issued an arrest warrant for Becker last week. They say he made the threats against the governor and his family by telephone on Sept. 20. Authorities are still searching for Becker.

Hughes County State's Attorney Kelly Marnette says it is standard procedure to ask for an indictment following an arrest warrant being issued.

The governor often receives threats, but Daugaard has said the ones allegedly made by Becker were very specific.
