Two Watertown teens plead guilty in Sioux Falls killing



    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Two Watertown teenagers involved in a December slaying in Sioux Falls have pleaded guilty to assault and manslaughter.
 
     Nineteen-year-old Brian Anderson and 18-year-old Trevor Kruthoff entered their pleas on Tuesday. They could face life in prison in the death of 20-year-old Jordan LeBeau.
 
     Authorities say LeBeau was killed when Anderson and Kruthoff broke into the marijuana dealer's home to steal what they thought would be $100,000 in drug money. Kruthoff on Tuesday admitted firing the shots that killed LeBeau and injured LeBeau's father.
 
     In July, 21-year-old Kevin Rice pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He admitted showing the teens where LeBeau lived and giving them the loaded handgun. Authorities say Rice and LeBeau were partners in the drug trade.
