Judge allows evidence in 1975 AIM slaying trial of Peltier confession to shooting age

By Dave Kolpack
Rapid City, South Dakota (AP)

A judge says an alleged murder confession and threat by American Indian Movement leader Leonard Peltier should be introduced as evidence in a decades-old South Dakota murder case, but won’t allow a note that prosecutors described as an execution order.

John Graham and Thelma Rios are scheduled for trial in state court later this year on charges they participated in the killing of fellow AIM member Annie Mae Aquash on the Pine Ridge reservation in 1975. Prosecutors believe AIM leaders ordered the 30-year-old Aquash killed because they thought she was a government informant. Investigators deny she was a snitch.
