Female Suspect In Greywind Murder Makes Court Appearance
FARGO, S.D. – One of two people accused in the kidnapping and murder of a pregnant Fargo woman appeared in court Thursday.
Brooke Crews is accused of conspiracy to commit Savanna Greywind’s murder, kidnapping her baby girl and giving false information to police, purposely misleading the investigation. Savanna Greywind’s friends and family packed the courtroom with some wearing ‘Justice for Savanna’ tee shirts.
Greywind disappeared August 19th and was last seen in Crews’ apartment she shared with her boyfriend and co-defendant William Hoehn. Greywind’s body was found more than a week later in the Red River. Kayakers found the remains wrapped in plastic and duct tape. Greywind’s baby girl was found alive with Crews but is now in the custody of her father. Crews was expected to enter a plea on the three charges.
“At this point, Ms. Crews chose on my advice not to specifically enter a plea. The judge enters a not guilty plea, procedural to move the case forward,” said Steven Mottinger, Crews’ attorney.
William Hoehn admitted removing garbage bags containing bloody towels and his own bloody shoes from the apartment and disposing of them. Hoehn is facing the same charges and entered a not guilty plea Tuesday.
Crews will appear in court again in January and Hoehn is now scheduled to be back in court in December.
