MITCHELL, S.D. — A Mitchell man accused of stabbing another man to death outside of an apartment complex has been charged with first-degree manslaughter.

Forty-nine-year-old Anthony Lewis allegedly stabbed the 30-year-old man four times after a confrontation early Tuesday. The victim’s name hasn’t been released.

Police say the two men knew one another and had an adversarial relationship.

First-degree manslaughter is punishable by up to life in prison.
