Repeat Offender Sentenced To 46 Months In Federal Prison For Domestic Violence

United States Attorney Erica H. MacDonald today announced the sentencing of LANDON CONAN KINGBIRD, 34, to 46 months in prison for one count of domestic assault by a habitual offender. KINGBIRD, who pleaded guilty on March 26, 2018, was sentenced on November 14, 2018, before Judge Joan N. Ericksen, in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

According to the defendant’s guilty plea and documents filed in court, on June 14, 2017, a female victim, Victim A, was taken to the Red Lake Indian Health Services Hospital, suffering from a stab wound to the leg and laceration on her forehead. Upon meeting with responding officers, Victim A informed officers that while sitting in her car, KINGBIRD stabbed her in her leg and struck her in the face splitting her forehand and causing her to receive stiches and medical attention. KINGBIRD denied stabbing Victim A, a former domestic partner, but admitted striking her in the face.

Before this assault on Victim A, KINGBIRD had been convicted on at least two prior occasions of serious violent felonies against an intimate partner. Once, in 2007 in Roseau County District Court, for 3rd Degree Assault against his then-girlfriend, and in April, 2013, in Beltrami County District Court for Domestic Assault – By Strangulation against Victim A.

The case was investigated by the Red Lake Department of Public Safety and the FBI Headwaters Safe Trails Task Force.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah Hudleston prosecuted the case.
