SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A 17-year-old accused of fatally beating another teen during a fight in Sioux Falls has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in agreement with prosecutors.

Wilson Hughes entered the plea in court Monday in the death of 18-year-old Rick Strauser last July. The two were among a-half dozen teens involved in a fight circulated online through Snapchat.

The Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/2qT0ees ) reports a judge told Hughes he could be sent to prison for 30 years or more. Hughes agreed to the facts presented by the state - that he punched Strauser 10 to 12 times and kicked him in the ribs and head after he had fallen to the ground.

Strauser died the morning after the attack.
