An Army soldier pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life for the murder of a fellow soldier who was Cheyenne and Navajo.

Pfc. Jonathan Schroeder, 21, admitted to killing Spc. Clint Lamebear outside a bar in Germany last November. Schroeder said he and another soldier robbed and beat Lamebear as a "joke" in order to "teach him a lesson" for being drunk.

Lamebear, 18, grew up on the Navajo Nation.
