SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming man accused of killing three relatives has pleaded guilty. Fifty-five-year-old Dana Beartusk pleaded guilty Tuesday in state District Court in Sheridan to three counts of second-degree murder.

Beartusk tells Judge John Fenn he was intoxicated when he killed 54-year-old Seana Fisher, 25-year-old Mochdaveyano “Blackhawk” Fisher, and 51-year-old Angelina Beartusk 51, in March 2020. Their bodies were found in Beartusk’s home in Big Horn. The Sheridan Press reports Beartusk initially was charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Each second-degree murder charge is punishable by at least 20 years in prison. A sentencing hearing is set for April 13.
