SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The man charged with killing a pizza delivery driver has ties to a group of people in Sioux Falls who had plans to make money by robbing people, according to an arrest affidavit.

Jahennessy Deunique LaPaul Bryant, 21, was arrested Wednesday in Sioux Falls on charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, first-degree attempted robbery and manslaughter with a dangerous weapon.

Bryant is the only suspect in the murder, said Lt. Terrance Matia, but adds the case isn’t done yet. It’s an ongoing investigation, the Argus Leader reported.

Casey Bonhorst, 30, was shot to death Feb. 26 after he delivered a pizza. Police say Bonhorst was shot after Bryant tried to rob him.
