SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The girlfriend of a marijuana dealer who was killed in December has been sentenced to nearly seven years in federal prison in connection to his death.

A federal judge sentenced 21-year-old Faith Rasmussen on Monday for drug trafficking and money laundering after she took a plea deal earlier this year. She also faces charges in state court.

Rasmussen was the girlfriend of Jordan LeBeau, who was killed in what authorities say was a botched robbery. Two Watertown teenagers have pleaded guilty to assault and manslaughter in LeBeau’s slaying.

The indictment says Rasmussen had a role in planning the break-in to rob her boyfriend. Authorities say the drug conspiracy involved over 200 pounds of marijuana.

Rasmussen said in court Monday she was sorry for everything that happened.
