Missoula murder suspects accused of violence, threats while in custody

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Both suspects charged with the double murder that occurred this summer on Strand Avenue in Missoula are now accused of threats and violence toward other inmates and detention center staff, according to court documents.

In separate motions filed with Missoula County District Court by prosecutors, both Tiffanie Pierce and Augustus Standingrock are said to be too dangerous to spend time using the Missoula County Detention Center's law library.

Prosecutors moved to revoke Standingrock's access and deny a motion to allow Pierce use the library due to a litany of incidents that have occurred while the defendants have been in custody.

Standingrock has been discovered multiple times with an illicit item in his possession to be used as a weapon, including one incident where he spent two hours refusing to lock down that resulted in a special detention response team being called in.

Tiffanie Pierce has graphically threatened other inmates and detention staff and resisted restraint while in custody, court documents say. 

Prosecutors have also expressed concerns about Pierce and Standingrock appearing in person, saying that they present a security threat to transport officers.
