RAPID CITY, S.D. — A Rapid City man accused of killing a convenience store clerk during a robbery is scheduled for trial in December.

Nineteen-year-old Cody Grady is charged with first-degree murder or manslaughter in the January stabbing death of 45-year-old Kasie Lord at the Loaf ‘N Jug. He’s also charged with aiding and abetting first-degree robbery of grand theft.

A Seventh Circuit judge has set his trial to begin Dec. 4 at the Pennington County Courthouse. The Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/2vJJids ) reports Grady is seeking to throw out statements he made to law enforcement while intoxicated.

A 17-year-old co-defendant is asking to move his case to juvenile court.
