Hudson Arraigned

Monday, April 13, 2015

Joshua Hudson made an appearance in First Circuit Court Monday morning and plead not guilty by reason of mental illness to several charges including second degree homicide in the March 2014 death of his uncle, Todd Hudson. Deputy States Attorney Erich Johnke asked the court to order a third psychiatric evaluation of the defendant which would be conducted in Rapid City next month. Defense Attorney Dan Fox objected to that noting that the state was unhappy that a second evaluation, conducted by Doctor Hartley Alsgaard at the South Dakota Human Services Center had been inconclusive in its’ results. Judge Eng ordered that Hudson be transported to Rapid City for the evaluation and set the week of July 27th as the trial date in the matter.

Westbrook Estates

Monday, April 13, 2015

The construction of the proposed Westbrook Estates housing development on Yankton’s east side took a step forward Monday night with an approval of annexation of the property into city limits. Development and Planning Director Dave Mingo says since the annexation was proposed by the property’s owners the city commission is able to approve it without a formal hearing process. The Yankton City Commission also took action last night to approve the initiation of the process to rezone the Westbrook Estates property to a multiple and single family residential classification. That rezoning request now goes before the Yankton City Planning Commission for their consideration.
