  • A man initially accused of murder in a fatal hit-and-run in southeastern North Dakota has been sentenced on lesser charges of manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.
     
    KFGO radio reports that 23-year-old Dakota Sutton reached a plea deal with prosecutors under which he pleaded guilty and received a 20-year prison term.
     
    Authorities alleged that Sutton was drunk in April 2013 when he forced 28-year old Reavis Dandridge out of his truck on a road in Oakes, then struck him and left him for dead.
