Trial Of Man Accused Of Shooting Patrol Trooper Being Moved
Trial for a Kimball man accused of shooting a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper nearly two years ago is being moved out of Brule County to better ensure an impartial jury.
Judge Bruce Anderson on Friday agreed to move the trial of 43-year-old Donald London, possibly to the Tripp County town of Winner.
Jackson didn’t immediately rule on a defense request to dismiss the case.
London has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges including attempted murder in the January 2015 shooting of Patrol Sgt. John Koenig, who recovered.
London’s 67-year-old father, Michael London, had been accused of aiding in the assault before he died a year ago.
