An FBI affidavit says Jared Slader is accused of stabbing Lester Peneaux with a 3- or 4-inch knife outside the Golden Rule Bar in Eagle Butte after an argument.

The Argus Leader reports that Peneaux died during surgery at a hospital in Eagle Butte about five hours later. Slader was taken to the same hospital for a jaw injury.

Investigators say Slader told them he was defending himself after being assaulted by four or five people while sitting in a vehicle and talking to someone.

Slader faces up to life in prison if convicted.
