Charles Russell Rhines

Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the South Dakota Supreme Court has denied Charles Russell Rhines’ request for further appeals. Rhines was convicted in 1993 for brutally murdering of 22-year-old Donnivan Schaeffer during a burglary of a Rapid City donut shop on March 8, 1992.

“The Schaeffer family has waited more than 20 years for justice in their son’s case,” said Attorney General Jackley. “The Supreme Court’s order is an important step in holding Rhines accountable for his horrific actions to the Schaeffers and the community.”
