January 3, 2019

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A Roslyn man convicted of fatally shooting another man while burglarizing his home has lost his appeal to the South Dakota Supreme Court.

The attorney general’s office says justices on Thursday upheld the murder and burglary conviction of Jason Lewandowski in the late 2015 death of 33-year-old Jeremy Hendrickson.

Authorities say Lewandowski broke into Hendrickson’s home at night and shot him in the head in front of Hendrickson’s wife and child.

Lewandowski is serving life in prison.
