No death penalty for ‘M.D.’

She is known only as M.D., a girl who, at age 15, was arrested for her involvement in the November killing of 16-year-old Jasmine Guevara, of Mitchell.
She is accused of helping Alexander Salgado, 21, kill Guevara. Neither Hanson County State’s Attorney Jim Davies nor Paige Wilbur, South Dakota Attorney General press secretary, would comment recently on charges or maximum penalties for the girl, but state law does say one thing: she cannot face the death penalty.
