Oct 1, 2012

SDPB News Producer Kealey Bultena talks about the latest update in the Berget case. The South Dakota Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments today in the case of 50-year-old Rodney Berget. Berget pleaded guilty to killing guard Ronald Johnson in April 2011 at the state penitentiary during a botched prison escape. A judge sentenced Berget to die by lethal injection. But Berget's lawyer is now appealing the sentence.
