Seifke trial delayed until late May

(Rose Seifke)

A Hemingford woman accused of being an accessory in the death of former Alliance resident Josh Bullock has had her trial moved to late May.

Judge Travis O'Gorman has scheduled a three-day trial for Rose Seifke to begin May 20.

Bullock's body was found south of Chadron last summer. 27-year-old Andy Gonzalez of Alliance told law enforcement during a June 12 standoff in downtown Alliance that he had killed Bullock in Alliance in December of 2011, and then transported his body to Dawes County and buried it in the Pine Ridge forest south of Chadron.

Seifke allegedly assisted Gonzalez by traveling with him to the area where Gonzalez burned a pickup truck with Bullock's body inside. Two days later the couple allegedly returned to the burned truck and Gonzalez buried Bullock's remains in a different location. Seifke, whose trial was orginally scheduled for early March, remains free of bond.

Seifke's attorney, Larry Miller of Alliance, has filed a motion asking the court to appoint new counsel for Seifke. Miller is one of two finalists for the position of county court judge to be based in Alliance. That motion is scheduled to be heard on March 7 at 8:30 a.m.
