Man reaches plea deal in fatal Sioux Falls shooting

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A man accused of shooting and killing a man in a downtown Sioux Falls alley has pleaded guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence.

28-year-old Heriberto Perez-Torres pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and possession of a controlled substance on Friday. As part of a plea bargain, Judge Natalie Damgaard capped Perez-Torres’ potential sentence at 25 years in the January death of 37-year-old Jeremy Flynn.  Authorites say Torres was dating Flynn’s ex-girlfriend.

Sentencing is set for next month.
