The South Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the life sentence of Jonathon Klinetobe, the Rapid City man who enlisted two other men to murder his ex-girlfriend in 2015.

Klinetobe pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, and in December 2019, the judge imposed the maximum sentence of life without parole.

A month later, Klinetobe argued to the Supreme Court that the sentence was too harsh.

In its opinion issued Thursday, April 15, the Supreme Court disagrees.
