Petersen makes preliminary hearing at Kadoka

Back to jail ... Thomas Petersen was escorted from the Jackson County Courthouse by Kadoka Chief of Police Woody Davis following Petersen’s preliminary hearing last Thursday morning. Terry Deuter assisted in transport of Petersen to the Winner jail.

Thomas Petersen, 39, appeared in Jackson County court for a preliminary hearing Thursday, June 16, at 10:00 a.m. with Judge John Brown presiding.

Petersen has been held in jail following an incident in Jackson County on Sunday, June 4.

After his wife, Judy Petersen, of Greene, Iowa, was found dead, Thomas was named the suspect in the murder, and their two-year-old son, Jacob Duncan Petersen, was missing.

An Amber Alert was issued, which listed Petersen as armed and dangerous. He was later found in Jackson County.
