Rapid City (AP)
A Rapid City man has been sentenced to 7 1/2 years in prison for stealing beer from a store clerk who was later stabbed to death by the man's companion.
Cody Grady, 20, last month pleaded guilty to robbery in the stabbing death of Loaf 'N Jug clerk Kasie Lord on Jan. 18, 2017.
Grady's companion, 18-year-old Carlos Quevedo, has pleaded guilty to murder and faces a mandatory life sentence.
Authorities say Lord was stabbed 38 times.
