SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A Sioux Falls man convicted of strangling another man in an argument over a taxicab ride has been sentenced to serve 80 years in prison.
A jury last summer convicted 45-year-old Lloyd Wilson of manslaughter and aggravated assault in the October 2010 death of 42-year-old Bret Moe of Sioux Falls. Judge Joseph Neiles told Wilson during his sentencing Monday that Wilson likely won't be eligible for parole until he has served at least 52 years behind bars.
Authorities say Moe died in a hospital about a month after being choked by Wilson. The two men had argued after separately calling for a cab from a bar, then climbing into the same cab. Wilson's lawyers argued during his trial that he acted in self-defense.
