Bond Set at $500K for Rapid City Homicide Suspect Charles Birdshead
RAPID CITY - Bond has been set at $500,000 for a man accused of shooting and killing another man outside a Rapid City motel.
Thirty-year-old Charles Birdshead is accused of shooting 33-year-old Eustacio Murrufo to death on Jan. 7 at the South Dakota Rose Inn.
Judge Wally Eklund set Birdshead's bond of cash only during a hearing Tuesday.
Birdshead has pleaded not guilty to eight charges, including first-degree manslaughter, fourth-degree rape, possession of a controlled weapon and distributing methamphetamine to a minor.
The rape charge involves a child, which police say was uncovered during their investigation.
Birdshead faces a maximum sentence of life in prison plus 80 years if found guilty.
