WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say two people sought in relation to a beating in Williston, North Dakota have been arrested in South Dakota.
Butte County Sheriff Fred Lamphere says Kyle Siler and Jessica Gibson were apprehended near Belle Fourche, South Dakota late Friday night. In an affidavit, Williston police say Siler beat Dean Neiderklopfer in the early hours of Friday in the oil boomtown. Police say Neiderklopfer was expected to be declared brain-dead.
Siler faces an aggravated assault charge. Gibson was wanted on a hindering law enforcement charge for filming the incident and fleeing with Siler. Police say they are a couple.
Lamphere says the two are approximately 30 years old. He added that they are being held at the Meade County Jail in Sturgis and are awaiting extradition to North Dakota.
