PIERRE, S.D. — An Oacoma woman has been sentenced to serve two years in prison for being an accessory in the stabbing death of a man in the city a year ago.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says 28-year-old Dayna Wells was sentenced Thursday to five years with three years suspended.

Wells in June pleaded guilty in the stabbing death of Calvin Shields in September 2015.

Twenty-seven-year-old Whitney Turney, of Oacoma, pleaded guilty in January to manslaughter and was sentenced in March to 25 years in prison.
