Prosecutor: Gun, Blood, Money Prove Murder

Jul 9, 2014

Testimony in the trial of a Hot Springs man accused of killing his mother started Tuesday in a Rapid City courtroom, after prosecution and defense lawyers made opening statements. Twenty-eight-year-old Matthew Charles Tornquist is charged with grand theft and first degree murder, or in the alternative, second degree murder. If convicted of one of the murder charges, he’ll spend life in prison without parole. SDPB’s Victoria Wicks is covering this case.
