SIOUX FALLS (AP) - Police have made two arrests in Sioux Falls in connection with a homicide earlier this week.

Authorities arrested 29-year-old Henry Little Long and 23-year-old Kelsey Roubideaux Thursday in Sioux Falls. Both are due in court Friday.

Roubideaux was booked into the Minnehaha County Jail on suspicion of first-degree manslaughter and drug possession. Police say Roubideaux was driving a vehicle when Lakendrick Thornton was shot and killed in the back seat early Tuesday. Thornton's body was found in a ditch near Renner later that morning. According to an affidavit, Thornton had been shot once in the chest.

Long is being held on $100,000 bond on a second-degree murder charge. A court document says Long and Thornton argued before he was shot.
