  • Lawyer wants trial delay in 1975 S.D. AIM killing

    By Carson Walker

    The defense lawyer for a Canadian man accused of killing a fellow American Indian Movement member 32 years ago wants to delay the trial three months.

    John Graham pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder for the slaying of Anna (Annie) Mae Pictou Aquash around Dec. 12, 1975, on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

    His federal trial is scheduled to start June 17 in Rapid City. But Graham’s lawyer, John Murphy of Rapid City, has asked the judge to waive his client’s right to a speedy trial and reschedule it for Sept. 15. A date has not been set yet.
