SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Bureau of Indian Affairs superintendent on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation who was stabbed last week has been released from the hospital.

Department of the Interior spokeswoman Nedra Darling says Patrick Duffy was released Wednesday and is expected to fully recover.

Authorities allege that Brian Iron Boulder stabbed Duffy in the back with a knife on March 25, penetrating Duffy’s chest wall. Court documents don’t indicate a motive.

Documents show that Iron Boulder waived his right to a detention hearing and requested a preliminary hearing.

As superintendent, Duffy oversees BIA facilities in Fort Thompson and manages tribal land.

The department says Duffy is requesting that everyone request his need for privacy while he recovers.
