Great Falls Man Busted For Hitting Wife And Then Locking Kids In Car.
Sioux Necklace has been thrown in the Cascade County Jail after reportedly hitting his common law wife several times over a three year period and in an apparent attempt to keep his wife from getting access to their two infant children, he locked them up in the family vehicle, left the vehicle at home and walked off with the only set of keys to the vehicle.
It was after he left that the wife called police and from there the story gets rather disturbing. According to charging documents in the case, the mother had dried blood coming from her right ear and a bruise starting to form under her left eye. the mother told police that Necklace had been beating her for three days straight.
THIS IS DIRECTLY FROM THE POLICE REPORT.
She told me (police officer) 3 days ago, he held the point of a knife to her neck leaving a small hole on her neck which I observed. Sioux put the 1 and 2 year old in the car and locked the doors before running away with the keys so wife could not get in to get the kids.
The kids were locked in the vehicle for about an hour and a half until police were able to get them out. The officer on scene says in his report that one of the children was covered with white powder all over his face. The child apparently was able to grab a pack of dry formula and was attempting to eat it dry.
Necklace was then tracked down and was questioned by police. he admitted to putting the kids in the vehicle but denied hitting his wife over a three day period. He also denied putting a knife to his wife's throat. He did not have an explanation for her injuries.
Wanted Fugitive Arrested in Great Falls.
Necklace is facing two counts of endangering a child and two counts of assault. His bond has been set at $40,000.
He also has a prior criminal record and did serve some time in the state prison system.
