BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man accused of sexually assaulting a woman who was later found dead has reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

Thirty-four-year-old Richmond White Eagle was charged with felony sexual assault after the body of the woman was found outside an apartment complex in Fort Yates on April 19.

KXMB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1NneJfE ) that court documents indicate White Eagle has admitted having sex with the woman while she was unconscious but said he did not kill her.

A change-of-plea hearing will be scheduled later.
