SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Department of Corrections says a 54-year-old man serving a life sentence for manslaughter has died at the state penitentiary.

Officials say Rick Pulfrey died in a comfort care setting at the Sioux Falls prison Friday following an extended illness.

Pulfrey was sentenced to life in prison in 1994 for first-degree manslaughter out of Pennington County. He was charged with killing his girlfriend of eight years, Wendy Powell, at their home in October 1993 when an argument escalated into a physical fight.

An autopsy on Pulfrey is being conducted.
