Rapid City Jury Hearing Alienation of Affection Lawsuit

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Jurors in Rapid City are hearing a case in which a county prosecutor is accused of stealing the affections of another man’s wife.

Doug Rumpca alleges that Pennington County State’s Attorney Glenn Brenner stole the affections of his then-wife, Kellie Rumpca, and later married her. A trial judge earlier threw out the lawsuit but the state Supreme Court in May overturned the ruling, saying a jury should decide if Kellie Rumpca had any affection for her then-husband that Brenner could have alienated.

Doug Rumpca’s attorney told the jury in opening statements Monday that the Rumpcas worked to improve their marriage. Brenner’s attorney said Kellie Rumpca aggressively pursued Brenner.

The Rapid City Journal reports that the trial is scheduled to last all week.
