SIOUX FALLS (AP) - A Sioux Falls man who pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing his wife has been sentenced to 100 years in prison.

Irving Jumping Eagle apologized and said he would never forgive himself before he was sentenced in Minnehaha County court Monday after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter. Jumping Eagle says he and his wife struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and that he doesn't remember stabbing his wife last April at a Sioux Falls apartment.

The Argus Leader says Jumping Eagle was initially charged with first- and second-degree murder, along with the manslaughter charge. The murder charges were dropped as part of a plea deal.

Thirty-three-year-old Alicia Rhae Jumping Eagle was found dead with several stab wounds to the head and chest at her Sioux Falls apartment.
