Supreme Court Grants New Trial to Former Police Chief

“Former County Prosecutor Jennifer Lowrie (smiling below) was the first person to arrive at the scene of the shooting which occurred at the Huber household Oct. 28, 2007. She admitted to law enforcement that night that she and the then Police Chief Ken Huber had been having an affair. She also said Pam Huber knew about the relationship.

Accidents with a firearm are common among cowards with badge's whom murder their wives in cold blood. Former Chief of Police Ken Huber, also a weapons expert and instructor at the time "his gun discharged" won the right to a new trial. Last week, the South Dakota Supreme Court ruled that during the murder trial of Pam Huber, the circuit court judge did not allow experts to testify Huber's gun "could have discharged by accident while he was attempting to secure a lock on the weapon." He claims it went off and struck his wife Pam Huber in the head.

The 2007, criminal complaint against Ken Huber showed that after dialing 911, he called the then County Prosecutor Jennifer Lowrie, whom admitted in the complaint to having had a sexual affair with Ken Huber. She arrived at the scene before law enforcement or EMS personnel, walked through the crime scene and was handed the phone to talk to the 911 operator, per the court documents.


Pam Huber (pictured above) died from her injuries on Friday November 2, 2007. She does not have the opportunity to file and appeal for a new trial. After the shooting a protection order alleged that former Miller and Highmore Police Chief Ken Huber walked into a bedroom where his wife and 11 year-old daughter were laying in bed and shot Pam Huber in the head.

Family attorney Matt Theophilus says, "He approached her in bed and shot her one time through the forehead, daughter unfortunately awoke to the sound of the gun shot and saw her mother terribly injured and bleeding and saw her father leaving the room with a gun in his hand."

In 2007, Matt Theophilus was the attorney representing the Huber's 11 and 12 year old daughters, and Pam Huber's son. The three filed a protection order against Ken Huber because he has not been arrested immediately following the shooting of their mother. Theophilus says, "Their concern is what will he do in the future." That concern comes because of what they say Ken Huber has done in the past. The protection order says Huber has physically and emotionally abused Pam Huber for at least 10 years, but she never reported it. Theophilus says, "She has never felt able to report this for fear of reprecussions given his positions as chief of police."

If Pam Huber had the opportunity, prior to her murder, to prepare a "Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit" and video as prescribed in the book "Time's Up," there would be no opportunity for the supreme court to grant a new trial. Pam's words and testimony, from her grave, would have been sufficient.

It is up to you and I to sound the sirens for justice to those married to law enforcement officers whom fight to the end, silenced by a system where the brotherhood of the badge continues to send innocent women to their graves.

The book "Time's Up A Guide on How To Survive and Abusive and Stalking Relationship" is the prescription if you will, that every person must obtain before they announce they are leaving. Below is an example from Chapter 4, one of many unique tools provided in the book. It is available on, we can send it to you via e-book or on a cd. If you have questions, the email address is
