SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls teenager acquitted of murder earlier this year is now accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and threatening her and her current boyfriend.

Eighteen-year-old Conner Hanson faces charges including burglary, simple domestic assault and stalking. The Argus Leader reports a judge set his bond at $100,000 cash only.

Authorities say Hanson kicked his ex-girlfriend’s door open Friday. She hid while her current boyfriend got a hammer, and Hanson allegedly ran.

Hanson allegedly texted threatening messages to the victim after getting pulled over by police Saturday. The Argus Leader reports Hanson’s attorney says some facts in the case are “unfounded.”

A jury in January found Hanson not guilty in the January 2015 killing of 18-year-old Anthony Gabriel, who authorities say was shot and killed after a car chase. Hanson argued self-defense.
