BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A onetime Three Affiliated Tribes chairman has been sentenced to six months of probation on an assault charge.

Marcus Levings, also known as Marcus Wells Jr., pleaded guilty in March to assault by wounding.

Authorities say Levings punched his wife in the mouth during an argument on July 3, 2016.

Levings, of New Town, was chairman of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation from 2006 through 2010.
