Trial set for remaining Aquash murder defendant
Richard Marshall, a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, will go to trial on October 6 for the murder of American Indian Movement activist Anna Mae Pictou Aquash.

Federal prosecutors say Marshall provided the gun that was used to kill Aquash on the Pine Ridge Reservation in December 1975. But the man who allegedly shot Aquash won't be tried in federal court because he isn't "Indian," the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last week.

Marshall was going to be tried with John Graham, a Native man from Canada, until the charges were dismissed against Graham. Marshall's attorney had asked for a separate trial.

Graham could still be charged in state court with Aquash's murder. Aquash was Mi'kmaq from Canada.
