Bookmark and Share

A North Dakota man whose father is serving life in prison for one of the most gruesome killings in state history pleads guilty to second-degree murder.
 
23-year-old Daniel Greatwalker Jr., of Belcourt, is accused of killing 21-year-old Perry Picotte by stabbing him several times last November.

Greatwalker is also charged with covering up evidence in the case.

He faces life in prison when he's sentenced in February.

Daniel Greatwalker "Sr.," of Belcourt, was convicted in 2002 of killing 43-year-old Linus Wallette, whose body was found in a wooded area near Belcourt.

Authorities said Wallette was beaten with a pickax, knife and hammer.
