Rapid City Woman Claims Self-Defense in Fatal Stabbing

RAPID CITY, SD. (AP) — A Rapid City woman accused of stabbing her nephew to death over the weekend says she acted in self-defense.

The Rapid City Journal reports court documents say 32-year-old Lorraine Swallow told police who responded to her home on Saturday that 28-year-old Tyrell Bull Bear had tried to fight with her.

Swallow made her initial court appearance on a second-degree murder charge Monday. Her bond was set at $100,000 cash. She’ll enter a plea later.
