Man Agrees To Plea Deal In Killing

Updated: Tuesday, July 30 2013, 09:14 PM CDT

SPENCER, Iowa (AP) -- A man accused of killing a northwest Iowa man during a fight has agreed to a plea deal that lowers his charges.

The Sioux City Journal reports 23-year-old Chase Foote pleaded guilty Monday to felony involuntary manslaughter and misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and assault causing bodily injury. He was later sentenced to up to seven years in prison.

Foote originally faced charges of second-degree murder and willful injury in connection with the death of 44-year-old Jefferson Wilbur, of Dickens.

The newspaper reports Wilbur's badly beaten body was found in September. He died two months later at a hospital.

Foote must pay $150,000 to Wilbur's estate as part of the sentence.
