PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A woman who has admitted to using a steak knife to stab a man in the back at the Rosebud Indian Reservation has been sentenced.

Acting U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says 24-year-old Misty Fawn Swalley has been sentenced to 36 months in prison and two years of supervised release.

The Mission woman pleaded guilty in September to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Federal authorities say Swalley stabbed the man in June while at a gas station in Mission. Authorities say the stabbing happened after Swalley became upset about a conversation taking place.
