SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The man accused of killing a 75-year-old woman in her Sioux Falls home remains in a Wisconsin jail as authorities work to return him to South Dakota.
James McVay faces first-degree murder and burglary charges for allegedly entering the home of Maybelle Schein, killing her and then fleeing in her vehicle. Police located McVay near Madison.
The Argus Leader reports McVay allegedly told authorities he “killed an old lady” and wanted to go to Washington to kill President Barack Obama.
Minnehaha County State’s Attorney Aaron McGowan tells The Associated Press that McVay could return to Sioux Falls within days if he agrees. Otherwise, it could take up to 60 days for authorities to process McVay’s return.
McGowan says it’s premature to discuss whether McVay will face the death penalty.
