One of the men who beat and killed a Sioux Falls man and then dumped his body by the Big Sioux River in Iowa has pleaded guilty.
29-year-old Benjamin Carter pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to first degree manslaughter for killing Joseph Cynkar back in July.
Carter was one of the men who went to Cynkar's home back in July planning to rob him, but the robbery escalated into an assault and Cynkar died from head trauma and suffocation.
Cynkar's body was later found next to his pick-up truck on the banks of the Big Sioux River just outside of Larchwood, Iowa with a hood over his head and his feet and hands bound with TV cables.
Court documents say that Cynkar and Carter were involved with drugs and Cynkar's death could have been the result of a drug debt.
Carter faces 70 years in prison when he's sentenced.
