Five felony charges filed in Dawes County fatal rollover

Seven criminal charges- including five felonies- have been filed against the 32-year-old Pine Ridge woman who is accused of being behind the wheel during a drunk driving rollover that claimed the life of a 6-year-old girl.

Kimberly Eagle Bull was formally charged with the following last Wednesday in Dawes County Court:

  • Intentional Child Abuse Resulting in Death- Class IB Felony
  • Intentional Child Abuse Resulting in Injury- Class II Felony
  • Intentional Child Abuse- No Injury- Class 3A Felony
  • Motor Vehicle Homicide- DUI- Class 2A Felony
  • DUI Causing Serious Bodily Injury- Class 3A Felony
  • Transporting a Child While Intoxicated- Class I misdemeanor
  • False Reporting- Class I misdemeanor.

Authorities claim Eagle Bull was drunk driving on the evening of September 9th on Slim Butte Road north of Chadron.  She rolled the vehicle, and six people- including three children- were injured in the accident.

Six-year-old Christina Roubideaux and another child were airlifted to Denver Children’s Hospital, and Roubideaux died as a result of the injuries she sustained. An 8-year-old was seriously injured, and a 4-year-old received minor injuries.

Charges were filed in Dawes County two-and-a-half weeks later, and Eagle Bull was arraigned on the charges on September 27th.

Bond has been set at $50,000 at ten percent, and her next court date has been scheduled for October 18th.
