Man accused in reservation killing to remain behind bars


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of using his pickup truck, boots and a knife to assault one man and kill another on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation will remain jailed until trial.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Alice Senechal recently rejected a defense request to allow Dallas Thundershield to be moved to a private home or a halfway house, with monitoring. She based her decision on the alleged crime and Thundershield's criminal history of assault and escape.

"There is no condition or combination of conditions which would reasonably assure his appearance at future proceedings or which would reasonably assure the safety of the community," Senechal said in her ruling dated July 7.
