Bentaas, woman charged in cold case, out on bond

Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A Sioux Falls woman charged in a decades old cold case is out of jail Tuesday morning.

Last month Judge Susan Sabers tweaked Theresa Bentaas’s bond from $250,000 cash to $250,000 cash surety making it easier for her to get out of jail before she faces a judge again. 

According to the South Dakota SAVIN website, she was released from the Minnehaha County jail Monday.

Bentaas is accused of dumping her newborn baby in a ditch in east Sioux Falls nearly 40 years ago
