Psychiatric evaluation ordered for alleged kidnapper, burglar


A Rapid City man facing a potential life sentence for kidnapping charges has been ordered to have a psychiatric evaluation.   

Joshua Peacock, 28, is accused of breaking into a North Rapid Home and forcing a woman into his car, then forcing her to drive to Walmart to withdraw money.

Defense Attorney, John Murphy, says the case gives concern for the mental health of Peacock, who will have his evaluation at the Human Services Center in Yankton in mid to late April after a judge denied a request to have it with a local doctor.  

Kidnapping carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Peacock was arrested on December third, nearly a month after the incident. He is also charged with possession of a controlled substance.
