  • Man guilty in Spokane reservation killing, innocent on gun charge

    Spokane, Washington (AP)

    A man has been convicted of first-degree murder and burglary in a shooting on the Spokane Indian Reservation, but was found innocent of using a firearm in a crime of violence.

    The mixed verdict was handed down in early Febuary in the case of Norman “Griz” Ford Jr., 31, of Wellpinit, following a two-week trial and more than a week of deliberations in which U.S. District Judge Edward F. Shea issued four changes in jury instructions in response to questions from the panel.
