Petersen still in custody after preliminary hearing

Posted:
GREENE (KWWL) -

Thomas Petersen of Greene was in court Thursday for a preliminary hearing in South Dakota.

Authorities in that state arrested Petersen after a chase this month following an Iowa Amber Alert, out for his son, and the discovery of his wife's body in their northeast Iowa home.

Two deputies received non-life threatening injuries from the chase.

The hearing determined there is enough evidence to keep Petersen in custody for an arraignment in June 30.

Petersen faces two counts of attempted murder in South Dakota among other charges stemming from the chase.

He still may be charged in Iowa where he's a suspect in his wife's murder.
