SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Florida arrested on a first-degree murder charge in April in connection with a slaying more than 25 years ago in South Dakota will make his first court appearance this week.

The sheriff’s office in Minnehaha County says the initial court appearance of Kim Leroy Aune, of Lee County, Florida, has been scheduled for Tuesday.

Authorities accuse Aune of shooting his girlfriend, Kimberly Eidsness, on Nov. 13, 1989, at their home east of Sioux Falls.

Aune was indicted in April in South Dakota and arrested in Florida. He was 57 years old at the time of his arrest.

Aune is in custody at the Minnehaha County Jail. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
