FARGO—U.S. Attorney Timothy Q. Purdon announced that on March 6, 2013, Louis John Dunn of Fort Totten, North Dakota, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Ralph R. Erickson to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

The incident occurred on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation.

The charge of involuntary manslaughter carries a statutory maximum penalty of eight years’ imprisonment. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Sentencing for Dunn has been scheduled for May 29, 2012, in U.S. District Court in Fargo, North Dakota, at 10:45 a.m.
