May. 12, 2013
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A memorial fund has been set up for a 2-month-old boy whose father is charged in his death.
Twenty-nine-year-old Garfield Good Face, of Pierre, faces a second-degree manslaughter charge in the Thursday death of his son, Teirnyn (TEAR-nun).
KCCR radio reports that a cause of death has not yet been determined. Hughes County State's Attorney Wendy Kloeppner says an autopsy is planned.
The Probable Cause Affidavit, which states the reason for a suspect's arrest, has been sealed at the attorney's request.
Pierre police received a called of an unresponsive infant about 9:30 a.m. Thursday. When officers arrived to Good Face's home, they began CPR on the child. Teirnyn was pronounced dead after being transported to a hospital.
The Teirnyn Good Face Memorial Fund is set up at Wells Fargo.
