SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The girlfriend of a Sioux Falls man killed during a botched robbery in December 2013 has been sentenced to eight years in state prison for drug crimes.

Faith Rasmussen’s latest sentence will begin after her six years-and-eight-months federal prison sentence for her role in a drug ring.

Rasmussen had initially faced state burglary and robbery charges in connection with the break-in that ended in the shooting death of 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau. She reached a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to possessing a controlled substance, maintaining a place where drugs are used and concealing knowledge of a felony.

Rasmussen is the last of six people to be sentenced in the case.
