THE ANNUAL SGT. FLOYD MEMORIAL ENCAMPMENT IS BEING RELOCATED TO THE FLOYD MONUMENT FROM THE RIVERFRONT THIS WEEKEND. LAST YEAR IT WAS MOVED BECAUSE OF THE MISSOURI RIVER FLOOD. CITY MUSEUM DIRECTOR STEVE HANSEN SAYS THERE'S A DIFFERENT REASON THIS YEAR:
HANSEN SAYS THE 1804 LIVING HISTORY CAMP TAKES VISITORS BACK IN TIME WITH AUTHENTIC UNIFORMS, FIREARMS AND EQUIPMENT USED ON THE LEWIS & CLARK EXPEDITION:
A HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEKEND IS THE RE-ENACTMENT OF THE BURIAL OF SGT. CHARLES FLOYD AT THE GROUNDS OF THE FLOYD MONUMENT. THAT TAKES PLACE SATURDAY AT 6PM.
THE HISTORY ENCAMPMENT IS FREE AND RUNS SATURDAY FROM 10AM UNTIL 5PM AND SUNDAY FROM TEN UNTIL THREE.
The trial of a Sioux city man accused of beating two people with a crowbar while they slept has been postponed.
A Woodbury county judge has delayed the trial of 23-year-old James Kroll Jr. until November 13th. Kroll was scheduled to stand trial next week in County District Court.
Kroll is charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and first-degree burglary. Police say he beat 54-year-old Jeffrey Moravek to death and seriously injured 54-year-old Mary Tope after breaking into Tope's home in June.
Police say Tope's daughter, Emily, was in the house at the time and identified Kroll, her former boyfriend. Court papers say Kroll was distraught that their relationship had ended.
