A 34-year-old woman is being held for second-degree murder at the Pennington County Jail.
Ashley Peltier of Rapid City was arrested after 30-year-old James Rice, also known as Stanley Kennard III, was found with stab wounds from a knife on Tuesday night.
According to the report, Rapid City Police responded to an apartment at 10 Surfwood Drive in North Rapid City for a report of a stabbing around 10:30 p.m.
