FARGO, N.D. — A Moorhead, Minnesota, woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for her part in the stabbing death of a Fargo man.

Twenty-two-year-old Tamara Clapper is one of four people charged in the March 14 death of 26-year-old Rolandas House, in what authorities have labeled a drug-related killing.

KFGO radio reports that Clapper's sentence was part of a joint recommendation by her lawyer and Cass County prosecutors.

Nineteen-year-old Wade Garrett, of Fargo, pleaded guilty to stabbing House to death and was sentenced earlier to 24 years in prison. Clapper's father and brother are also charged in the case.

House's body was discovered near a grocery store on the city's south side. Police say Garrett stabbed House multiple times.
