Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — As attorneys prepare for Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg’s latest hearing, a family member is responding to new allegations in the case.

On Friday, Ravnsborg’s defense team filed new court documents claiming that Joe Boever may have jumped in front of the attorney general’s car the night he was killed.

Ravnsborg’s defense claims Boever was on an anti-anxiety drug that can cause suicidal thoughts.

KELOLAND’s Dan Santella spoke with one of Joe Boever’s cousins, Victor Nemec, on Monday. Nemec rejects the allegations, saying Boever had said “suicide is not an option.”

Ravnsborg faces misdemeanor charges for his driving on the night he hit and killed Boever on a Hyde County highway.

Monday’s hearing is at 3:30 p.m. KELOLAND’s Bob Mercer will be in the courtroom.
