PIPESTONE – Jamie Danneman, 34, of Currie, was taken into custody Saturday for second-degree murder without intent in the death of Steven Meyer. Danneman is currently being held in the Pipestone County Jail.
Meyer died August 23 at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD. He had been hospitalized since August 12 following an alleged fight with Danneman in Edgerton at Van Dyke Sanitation.
Danneman was originally charged with first-degree assault for causing great bodily harm to Meyer during the fight. He had already pleaded not guilty on that charge and was out of jail on bail.
