A Bismarck man accused in the death of his brother pleaded guilty in federal court today.  Orlen Smith, 26, is charged with voluntary manslaughter, assault and assault with a dangerous weapon. He faces 25 years in prison.

Smith was visiting his brother, Daniel Smith, on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation, when a fight broke out. Orlen swung a switchblade at his brother, and the knife struck Daniel in the side of the chest, piercing his heart.  Daniel died at the scene.

Orlen then attacked two other people in the home. One was stabbed in the arm, and the other suffered a laceration on the forehead.

Sentencing for Smith is scheduled for April 7.
