Sioux Falls, South Dakota (AP) 2-08

A St. Francis man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for a stabbing death on the Rosebud Reservation.

Melvin Smashed Ice, 38, was indicted for second-degree murder but pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of voluntary manslaughter.

Smashed Ice argued with a 17-year-old boy last June, chased him down and stabbed him with a pocket knife in the neck and heart, according to court documents.
