Man Gets 25 Years For Sioux Falls Homeless Killing

Man Gets 25 Years For Sioux Falls Homeless Killing
Clint Cottonwood


A judge in Sioux Falls sent a man to prison for 25 years for his role in the killing of another homeless man.

Clint Cottonwood was sentenced Monday to 70 years in prison but will serve a shorter time as part of a plea agreement.

Prosecutors say the 52-year-old was drinking alcohol at a homeless camp in May 2012 with Eugene Martin and Robert Thunder Hawk when Thunder Hawk made comments about Martin's girlfriend that led to a fight. Martin and Cottonwood both began beating Thunder Hawk and Martin killed Thunder Hawk with a blow to the head with a shovel.

Cottonwood earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and testified against Martin, who was convicted last month of first-degree murder.
