SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A Sioux Falls man is facing a number of charges after a man’s body was found in a burning ditch east of Brandon during the weekend.

Authorities have identified the victim as 22-year-old Saivaughn Robert Carlstrom, who also lived in Sioux Falls.

His body was found by a sheriff’s deputy on patrol Saturday.

The 48-year-old suspect was arrested in Sioux Falls Sunday and could be charged with first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping and second-degree sexual assault.

Officials say the kidnapping and assault charges involve another victim who was rescued on Sunday. He did not elaborate.
