Badger, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A Badger man is sentenced to four years in prison for a drug deal that turned deadly last April. 21-year old Kyle Tangen pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting an aggravated robbery.

He's one of three men arrested in connection to the stabbing death of 23-year old Matthew Shepard of Thief River Falls. Police say the men tried to beat up 19-year-old Daniel Molstad over drugs and money. A struggle followed.

Police found three knives, but because of a lack of evidence, none of the men is charged with the death.
