PIERRE (AP) - A South Dakota man who admitted he stabbed another man last year has been sentenced to almost three years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange has ordered 18-year-old Christofer Sand to follow his prison term with two years of supervised release. The Eagle Butte man earlier pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities accuse Sand of stabbing the victim three times in the chest and one time under his left arm. The attack happened Aug. 10 at Sand's home on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

Authorities say the victim had difficulty breathing after being stabbed, but was able to walk to a friend's house where he collapsed.
