RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A McLaughlin man was sentenced to just over 10 years in federal prison for stomping a man on the head and face with his feet.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 21-year-old Ross Dean Farrell earlier pleaded guilty to assault with intent to commit murder.

Prosecutors say that last October he was socializing with the victim and others at his home. At some point that evening, the victim went to sleep on a mattress on the floor. Farrell was mad about something the victim or someone else said and pulled the man off the mattress onto the concrete floor and attacked him.

The victim suffered major injuries, including severe head trauma that required surgeries and also had to be placed in a medically induced coma.
