RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls man who fatally shot a teen in a city park has been sentenced to nearly 40 years in prison.

Nineteen-year-old Dylan Holler pleaded guilty in November to manslaughter. Police say he killed 17-year-old Riley Stonehouse in August 2017 following a dispute over drugs.

Holler was ordered to pay more than $15,000 to the Stonehouse family for funeral and medical expenses. He will be eligible for parole after 20 years.

Holler pleaded guilty to shooting Stonehouse during the attempted robbery of a different teen. Holler hit the teen with the gun and it discharged, striking Stonehouse in the back.
