PIERRE, SD -
A Fort Thompson man accused of driving drunk and killing a pedestrian has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
Authorities say 20-year-old Austin Abernathy did not stop after striking 22-year-old Cole St. John late last year on a Fort Thompson road, and St. John died of his injuries.
Abernathy faces up to eight years in prison when he is sentenced next Feb. 6.
