Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An Eagle Butte man is scheduled to stand trial April 8 on federal charges stemming from a fatal shootout and standoff in late October.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jason Todd Garreau is charged with 19 federal counts related to the Oct. 30 shootout in Hyde County and an Oct. 31 standoff with law enforcement at a Pierre trailer court.

During the shootout, 24-year-old John Garreaux, of Dupree, was killed. In the nine-hour standoff at the Pierre trailer home, two police officers were wounded by gunfire.

Garreau also has been charged in Hughes County court with two counts of attempted first-degree murder for the Oct. 31 standoff.
