(SD)-Prosecutorial Misconduct Alleged In Keystone Shooting Case
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The lawyer for Maxon Pfeiffer, the Black Hills teenager charged with manslaughter in a fatal shooting in Keystone in June of last year, wants the charge dismissed because of prosecutorial misconduct.
In court Friday, attorney Dana Hannah said he has evidence that someone from the state's attorney's office told a witness that they were not permitted to talk to anyone from the defense team. Judge Jeffrey Connolly said he will take up the issue at a later date.
The 19-year old Pfeiffer is accused of fatally shooting Ty Scott in a Keystone home, but insists he accidentally killed Scott when a handgun they were passing around accidentally went off.
Pfeiffer remains free on bond under an agreement that includes 3-times a week drug testing. The agreement was reached in May after his original bond was revoked twice for marijuana use.
