A 20-year-old man is going on trial for the murders of two siblings from the Spirit Lake Nation of North Dakota. Destiny Jane Shaw-DuBois, 9, and Travis Lee DuBois Jr, 6, were found dead in a home on the reservation in May 2011. The children, whose mother is a tribal member, were killed in their father's home. The father was initially reported to be a suspect and later pleaded guilty to public intoxication and reckless endangerment,. But federal authorities say it was Valentino “Tino” Bagola who abused and killed Destiny and Travis. The trial is expected to last about two to three weeks, The Grand Forks Herald reported.
