One of the suspects in the slaying of a South Dakota teenager in North Dakota has been ordered held without bond.
Twenty-six-year-old Theo Crowe, of Trenton, had been jailed in Williston on unrelated charges. He made his initial court appearance in Bismarck this week. He will be appointed a public defender.
Crowe and another man are accused of conspiracy to commit murder in the death of 18-year-old John Swain, who was reported missing in mid-May after moving to Bismarck from Sioux Falls, S.D., in search of work. Authorities say Swain's body was found in late June at the home of Crowe's grandmother in Poplar, Montana.
The other suspect, 20-year-old Joshua Clark, of Stanley, earlier had bond set at $1 million cash. He remains jailed.
