BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to killing another man during a drug-fueled fight on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation and hiding the body in the trunk of his mother’s car has been sentenced to nearly 15 years in prison.

Marcel Chase pleaded guilty in May to voluntary manslaughter in the December 2014 slaying of Toby Young Bear in Mandaree. He initially had faced a more serious murder charge.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland recently sentenced Chase to 14 years and 10 months in prison, with credit for time served. Chase also was ordered to pay $1,500 in restitution. He will be on supervised release for three years following his prison term.
