FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fort Totten man serving nine years in prison for beating two boys and setting fire to their bedroom in Fargo has lost an appeal to the state Supreme Court.

Lyndon Greybear pleaded guilty in October 2012 to aggravated assault and endangering by fire in the November 2011 incident that involved his cousin’s 4- and 6-year-old children. KFGO radio reports (https://bit.ly/1sOOUQh ) Greybear appealed his conviction, but Supreme Court justices rejected his arguments of poor attorney help and prosecutor misconduct.

Attorneys said Greybear was drunk and suffered a psychotic episode when he beat the children, urinated on them, grabbed them by the throat and threw them in a closet before setting afire the bedroom and the pants of one of the boys.

Both boys were injured and hospitalized for a time.
