A Red Lake man has pleaded guilty to fatally beating and strangling his wife and leaving her on the side of a road in northern Minnesota.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 39-year-old Jeremiah Kingbird entered the plea to second-degree murder in federal court in Bemidji Tuesday. Authorities say Kingbird and his wife, who was not identified, were driving to their home in Ponemah last January after a night of drinking when they began to argue and got into a physical fight.
