SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Friends and acquaintances of a Sioux Falls homicide victim gathered outside the apartment where she was killed to remember her life and reclaim the spot as a place of peace.

Franklin Whiting was a neighbor and close friend of Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow. The 28-year-old woman was fatally stabbed in her apartment Jan. 1. Whiting was one of about 20 people who held a ceremony Wednesday night that included songs, prayer and cleansing with holy water.

He tells the Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/2jn9kgp ) his friend’s death was senseless and the ceremony was meant to bring people together to take back the site.

Bond for Joshua Rayvon LeClaire, the man accused of killing Wounded Arrow, has been set in Minnehaha County at $1 million cash.
