Second Man Charged in the Murder of John Swain

Posted: Updated:

More details are coming out about the death of an 18-year-old man.

John Swain disappeared from Bismarck in May, and a body was found earlier this week in Poplar, Montana at the home of a relative of one man accused in the case.

A second man has now been charged in his murder.

Police arrested 20-year-old Joshua Clark of Stanley, yesterday.

He appeared in court this afternoon, and when the judge read the charges against him, more details about the crime came to light.

"It's alleged that you committed the overt act or acts of obtaining a weapon, inviting John Swain to a residence, striking John Swain with a hammer, dismembering John Swain's legs, cleaning the scene of the murder, destroying physical evidence or concealing John Swain's body," says South Central Judicial District Judge Gail Hagerty.

25-year-old Theo Crowe of Trenton had originally been charged with his murder, but now faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder instead.

Police are still asking anyone with information about the case to call the Bismarck Police Department at 223-1212.
