(S.D.)-Trial Set For Rapid City Man Charged With Manslaughter

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 05/06/2013 01:10 PM

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A trial date has been set for a man charged with shooting another man to death in a Rapid City hotel parking lot earlier this year.

Reports indicate 30-year-old Charles Birdshead will stand trial for felony manslaughter July 29-August 5. Birdshead is accused of shooting 33-year-old Eustacio Maruffo to death at the South Dakota Rose Inn on Jan. 7. He also is accused of raping a child, which was uncovered during the investigation into the shooting.

Birdshead's attorney has asked that there be separate trials for each of the charges. A judge has yet to make a decision.

Birdshead's next court appearance is June 10.
