James Joseph Lanpher, Jr. & Bonner Raymond Juel

The two men arrested in connection with a high speed pursuit and officer-involved shooting that ended in Madison last month were arraigned on the charges they are facing in connection with the incident on Wednesday.  40-year-old James Lanpher, Jr. of Sioux Falls and 45-year-old Bonner Juel of Harrisburg both appeared for their arraignment in Lake County Magistrate Court.  Lanpher and Juel have been indicted on two counts each of attempted first-degree murder, with alternate counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.  They have also been charged with two counts of commission of a felony while armed with a firearm, and with being habitual offenders.  In court Wednesday, both Lanpher and Juel plead not guilty to the charges and a trial date of December 12th was set.  

Lanpher and Juel are charged for their involvement in an incident that started in Minnehaha County on July 14th, leading officers also on a high-speed pursuit with shots fired through Moody and Lake counties before coming to an end in Madison.     No one was injured in the incident.  

 The two men remain in the Lake County Jail in Madison on 100-thousand dollars cash bond each.
