Yankton man charged with 2nd degree murder

    YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say a Yankton man has been charged with second-degree homicide as murder in connection with his uncle's death.
     Twenty-eight-year-old Joshua Charles Hudson is also charged with aggravated assault and grand theft. 
     Hudson was arrested Friday after a chase that started in Iowa and ended in South Dakota. Hudson asked for an attorney during a court hearing. His bond was set at $1 million.
     Authorities say Hudson was driving his uncle's truck when arrested. They say officers found a blacksmith hammer in the truck that they believe Hudson used as the murder weapon.
