Another man sentenced in connection with a murder in 2019



Fargo, North Dakota – One of the individuals accused of killing Fargo food truck owner Jay Halvorson two years ago has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Kareem Byrd, 22, had previously entered an Alford plea to a felony charge of conspiring to commit murder.

Halverson died as a result of several gunshot wounds.

Harris was sentenced to 30 years in jail by a judge last year.
