  • New indictment in AIM slaying days after dismissal

    By Carson Walker

    A new federal indictment has been handed up against a Canadian man who was days from being tried in the 1975 slaying of a fellow American Indian Movement member when a judge threw out the original charges.

    Federal prosecutors said Oct. 7, that the new indictment by a jury in Rapid City addresses the concerns that prompted the dismissal of the earlier charges against John Graham in the slaying of fellow Canadian Annie Mae Aquash in 1975 on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
