Cody Grady


The trial of a Rapid City man accused of killing a convenience-store clerk during a beer theft this year has been moved from December to February.

Cody Grady, 19, is charged with first-degree murder and an alternative count of first-degree manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of Kasie Lord, 45, at the Loaf ‘N Jug on Mount Rushmore Road. Grady is charged also with aiding and abetting first-degree robbery and an alternative count of grand theft. He can be convicted of only one of his alternative charges.

Judge Heidi Linngren, of the 7th Judicial Circuit, rescheduled his Pennington County trial to Feb. 20-March 2 after Grady’s lawyer asked for more time to put together a supplemental jury questionnaire. Meanwhile, Grady’s co-defendant, Carlos Quevedo, has been moved from the local juvenile detention center to the county jail after turning 18 in September.
