One of two men accused of supplying methamphetamine that led to the death of a Mandan woman has been sentenced to nearly 12 years in prison.
Fifty-three-year-old Joseph Senger pleaded guilty earlier for the February 2013 overdose death of his girlfriend, 59-year-old Cheri Bettis of Mandan. Brock Fish also has pleaded guilty in Bettis' death and is scheduled for sentencing in October.
U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland on Monday sentenced Senger to 11 years and seven months in prison.
The federal case involves 13 defendants in North Dakota and South Dakota. Fish and Billie Jo Kirkpatrick also are charged in the December 2012 overdose death of 39-year-old Douglas Peterson, of Pollock, South Dakota.
