PIERRE (AP) - A 40-year-old Wakpala man convicted for assaulting his girlfriend has been sentenced to more than 2 years in custody.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Christopher Delong was sentenced to 28 months in custody to be followed by 3 years of supervised release.

Delong's girlfriend informed authorities that he had beat her in June 2015 after he became angry that someone else took his car keys.

She sustained injuries including a cut lip, swollen eye and a severely swollen hand.
