Man sentenced to 20 years for Pine Ridge Reservation killing

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man has been sentenced for a 2016 homicide on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

A jury in 2017 found 46-year-old Marlin Iron Crow guilty of second degree murder. Authorities say Iron Crow killed a man in Porcupine by punching and kicking him in the head during an argument.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Viken sentenced Iron Crow to 20 years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release.
