Man’s Bloody Shirt Matched DNA Of Yankton Woman


There’s new information on the disappearance and killing of a Yankton woman. 

A grand jury has decided there is enough evidence to charge Joseph James with arson. Court papers say he burned Phyllis Hunhoff’s car following her death. 

He was seen on video buying gasoline the night she disappeared. The following day, court papers say he left a bloody T-Shirt at someone’s home and the blood matched Hunhoff’s DNA.

James was back in federal court Thursday afternoon.  He pleaded not guilty to arson.
