RAPID CITY -- A 41-year-old Rapid Valley man was charged early Tuesday with murdering a 21-year-old woman who came to his home last week to sell magazines.

Neil Frame, 3030 Gypsey Road, faces first-degree murder charges in the death of Kristina Moore of Lancaster, Calif. Moore disappeared Wednesday evening while working for a door-to-door magazine crew in the Rapid Valley area where Frame lived.

Moore's body was found Friday morning in a field near Hermosa.

During a news conference Tuesday morning, city, county and state law-enforcement officers said autopsy results showed that Moore had suffered a blow to the head but died of asphyxiation from strangulation.

When she was found Friday, she still had a plastic zip tie around her neck, Pennington County State's Attorney Glenn Brenner said. There also were indications on the body that a stun gun might have been used, Brenner said.

"If anyone knows of a discarded stun gun found in the area, we'd like that information," he said.

Authorities also are seeking information about Frame's whereabouts between Wednesday evening and Monday evening. Lt. Lynn McLane of the Pennington County Sheriff's Office said Frame had emerged as a "person of concern" through extensive interviews of people living in the area where Moore was last known to be working.

McLane said officers had interviewed Frame and determined that he needed more investigation. But he came to the Pennington County Public Safety Building on his own about 7 p.m. Monday.

Frame was arrested about 1 a.m. for first-degree murder, a class 1 felony that carries a minimum penalty of life in prison and a maximum of death.
