Man accused of threatening to kill his late wife’s doctor faces new charges

RAPID CITY, S.D. — A Rapid City man accused of threatening to kill his late wife’s doctor faces new charges.

William Thoman, 63, is charged with two counts of criminal solicitation for allegedly facilitating aiding and abetting first-degree murder between March 28 and May 1.

In a bond hearing last month, Thoman learned about the new investigation in which he is accused of asking people in the Pennington County jail how to “get rid of” a witness and the judge presiding over the case. She has since recused herself.

These charges are separate from Thoman’s original charges, attempted first-degree murder and criminal solicitation, relating to a separate case.

According to court documents, Thoman posted his $250,000 cash/surety bond on April 30. Two days later, a complaint was filed and Thoman was booked into the Pennington County Jail.

Each criminal solicitation charge carries a maximum punishment of 50 years in prison.
