Teen charged in fatal crash trying to move to juvenile court

November 3, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Lawyers for a Sioux Falls teen charged in a fatal chase and crash are trying to get the case moved to juvenile court.

The 17-year-old is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter after the pickup truck he was driving forced a sedan off the road during a chase in February. A 15-year-old passenger in the car, Kareem Cisse, was killed when the car crashed. The pickup driver was 16 at the time. Authorities say the boy was pursuing the car over a botched drug deal.

The teen left the scene, telling police he didn’t think the crash killed anyone.

The Argus Leader says that during two days of testimony so far, the judge has heard from law enforcement and juvenile and medical experts, including a detective, former sheriff’s deputy, coroner and forensic psychologist.
