Bond is denied for a Rapid City man charged with two counts of kidnapping. Joshua Peacock's attorney, John Murphy, asked for a bond reduction for his client. He told the court that Peacock, 28, is not a flight risk and would be living with his parents and going to counseling.
The state opposed a reduction due to the nature of the charges and the fact that Peacock's mental and emotional state is in question. Judge Robert Gusinsky agreed. He did, however, say that he could attend psychiatric appointments as long as the jail could transport and monitor him.
Prosecutors say Peacock broke into a home, kidnapped a woman and demanded she get him money. They say he also kidnapped a juvenile around the same time. Both of the alleged victims are safe.
