SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – One of two people charged in a homicide last fall in the Sioux Falls area has admitted to helping leave the body of the victim in a ditch and cleaning the car where the victim was shot.

Twenty-three-year-old Kelsey Roubideaux pleaded guilty to being an accessory to a crime. She had been facing manslaughter and drug charges in the September killing of LaKendrick Thornton.

The plea deal also calls for Roubideaux to cooperate with authorities in the April murder trial of co-defendant Henry Little Long. Authorities allege Little Long shot and killed Thornton after the two argued while in a vehicle filled with people on their way to buy drugs.

Roubideaux faces up to five years in prison. Sentencing wasn’t immediately scheduled.
