FOLEY -- A Sauk Rapids man has been sentenced to 22 1/2 years in prison for the murder of a woman in 2019.

Forty-year-old David Williams Jr. also gets credit for already serving more than two years of that sentence in the Benton County Jail.

Williams pleaded guilty in May to 2nd-degree murder for the beating death of 30-year-old Crystal Bundy.
