Trial date set for Birds Head in Rapid City murder case


A trial date is set for a man charged with shooting another man to death in a Rapid City hotel parking lot back in January.

On July 29th through August 5th, Charles Birds Head, 30, will stand trial for felony manslaughter for the shooting death of Eustacio Maruffo, 33, at the South Dakota Rose Inn on January 7th. He also is alleged to have had a sexual relationship with a 15 year old child.

Monday morning his attorney requested that the charges be severed. This means there would be two different trials for each of the charges. The defense is drafting a motion and the state will have time to respond before the judge makes a decision.  

Birds Head's next court appearance is June 10th.
