Man Pleads Guilty To Manslaughter In N.D. Reservation Slaying
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of killing another man on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation and hiding the body in the trunk of a car while he recruited others to help dispose of it has reached a deal with prosecutors.
Marcel Chase is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Bismarck on Friday to plead guilty to a reduced charge of voluntary manslaughter, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, according to court documents filed last week. He currently faces a second-degree murder charge that carries a potential life prison term.
