Man given 40 years in prison after breaking into South Dakota home, assaulting victims

ST. FRANCIS, S.D. (AP) — A man accused of a fatal attack after breaking into a St. Francis home last year has been sentenced to 40 years in federal prison.


A federal judge also ordered 23-year-old Isaiah Young to serve five years of supervised release for second-degree murder.


Lange on Thursday imposed a 10 year sentence for assault with a dangerous weapon to run concurrently with the 40-year term.


Prosecutors say Young broke into a house in St. Francis on Jan. 24, 2021 and assaulted a couple sleeping in a bedroom. Young used a hammer and a knife in the attack.


The woman died of her injuries. The man survived.
