September 27, 2023

PIERRE.S.D. – South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley (pictured) says a Yankton man, Trevor Wayne Harrison, has been sentenced in Yankton County Circuit Court to 65 years in prison after

he earlier pled guilty to one count of First Degree Manslaughter.

Harrison was indicted in the 2022 shooting death of his former girlfriend, 26 year-old Jade Rembold, at a Yankton home. He later pled guilty to the one charge.

“This sentence brings resolution to a violent crime and perhaps some comfort to the victim’s family,” said Attorney General Jackley. “I want to thank all of the law enforcement officers and prosecutors who worked to bring justice in this case.”

Agencies involved in the investigation were the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation and Yankton Police Department.

Prosecution of the case was handled by the South Dakota Attorney General’s Office and Yankton County State’s Attorney’s Office.
