Wounded Knee man pleads guilty to murder

According to the factual basis statement signed by defendant Darwin Red Cloud, he and the 15-year old juvenile mother of the child took the baby home from the hospital healthy after being born in late August of 2014.
In the less than a two month period between late August and his death on October 11, 2014, Red Cloud and the mother failed to provide sufficient nourishment.
At the time of the child's death, he weighed just over 4.5 pounds, which was less than his birth weight.
Red Cloud pleaded guilty to a charge of second degree murder Thursday, and his fate is now in the hands of Judge Jeffery Viken.
He faces up to life in prison without parole.
