SIOUX FALLS, SD -
South Dakota prison inmate Rodney Berget will find out his fate Monday morning.

Late Friday afternoon, administrators in the second circuit court announced that Judge Brad Zell will hand down Berget's sentence Monday morning at 10:00 a.m.
Judge Zell has been deliberating Berget's sentence since the hearing ended Thursday morning.
