Second suspect arrested in Bismarck homicide

BISMARCK — Bismarck police say they have arrested a second suspect in the apparent slaying of a man who had recently moved to the city from Sioux Falls, S.D.

The 20-year-old Stanley man was arrested Thursday on a murder charge. Formal charges were pending on Friday.

Authorities already have charged 25-year-old Theo Crowe with murder in the apparent death of 18-year-old John Swain, who was last seen in mid-May.

Authorities say a body was found Wednesday at a home in Poplar, Mont., owned by Crowe's grandmother. An autopsy is being conducted to determine whether it is Swain.

Crowe does not yet have a listed attorney.
