SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A judge has set bond at $1 million cash-only for a man accused of fatally stabbing a transgender woman in Sioux Falls.

Twenty-five-year-old Joshua Rayvan LeClaire appeared in court Tuesday on murder and other counts. LeClaire is charged in the death of 28-year-old Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow, whose body was found in her apartment Friday night. Police say the killing does not appear to be a hate crime.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/2idBKrq ) reports video security footage shows LeClaire entering and leaving Wounded Arrow’s apartment building early Jan. 1.

Court documents say LeClaire told police that he was in Wounded Arrow’s apartment and used her phone after her death.

Before LeClaire’s court appearance, family and friends prayed outside the courthouse for justice for Wounded Arrow, saying she was a “bright light.”
