SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota prison inmate serving a life sentence for first-degree manslaughter has died after a long illness.

The state Department of Corrections says 79-year-old Robert Brim died Sunday at a Sioux Falls hospital. An autopsy is planned.

Brim received the life sentence in 1958 for shooting Irene Stoeser, who was pregnant at the time. Stoeser’s 3-year-old daughter also was shot and killed during the incident, but Brim was charged only with the death of Irene Stoeser. A 4-year-old son was also injured.

KCCR reports Brim was employed by Stoeser and her husband on their farm near Hayes in Stanley County.
