Sioux Falls teen wanted on murder, manslaughter charges arrested in Pierre

PIERRE, S.D. (DRG News) – A teenager from Sioux Falls wanted on murder and manslaughter charges was arrested Wednesday morning in Pierre.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Gross says 17-year-old Devon Montileaux (mont-ih-loo) was wanted for a warrant issued in Minnehaha County charging him with Second Degree Murder and First Degree Manslaughter.

The charges stem from an alleged incident at an apartment complex (on North Cleveland Avenue) in Sioux Falls that left Ephraim Shulue dead.

Gross says investigators with the Dakota Territory Fugitive Task Force– led by the US Marshal Service– searched for Montileaux and followed up on numerous leads.

Montileaux was transported to the Hughes County Jail and JSC complex to await future court appearances.

The Dakota Territory Fugitive Task Force has offices in Sioux Falls, Rapid City and Pierre. Agencies participating in the task force include the United States Marshals Service, Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, Pennington County Sheriff’s Office, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Hughes County Sheriff’s Office, Stanley County Sheriff’s Office, Brandon Police Department, Chamberlain Police Department, Mobridge Police Department, Pierre Police Department, South Dakota Highway Patrol, Department of Homeland Security – Immigration and Customs Enforcement, National Park Service and Social Security Administration.
