Pine Ridge man sentenced to prison in baseball bat killing

Posted: Updated:

 

PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) - A Pine Ridge man accused of using a baseball bat to beat another man to death after the two had argued has been sentenced to more than five years in federal prison.

Antoine Bissonette Jr., 31, was sentenced to 63 months behind bars to be followed by three years of supervised release. U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says restitution will be determined later.

Bissonette initially faced a second-degree murder charge in the Feb. 12 death of Daniel Bad Milk near Pine Ridge. He pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in May.
