The girlfriend of a marijuana dealer who was killed in December has pleaded guilty to her role in a federal drug conspiracy case linked to her boyfriend's homicide.
Twenty-one-year-old Faith Rasmussen pleaded guilty on Tuesday to federal drug trafficking and money laundering charges and faces a minimum of five years in prison when she is sentenced Nov. 24.
Rasmussen was charged in March along with her mother and two others.
Rasmussen was the girlfriend of Jordan LeBeau, who was killed in what authorities say was a botched robbery planned by other dealers in the Sioux Falls area. Two Watertown teenagers pleaded guilty last month to assault and manslaughter in LeBeau's slaying.
Authorities say the drug conspiracy involved more than 200 pounds of marijuana and tens of thousands of dollars.
