Aquash murder trial scheduled for February 2010
A federal judge set a February 16, 2010, trial date for two men charged with murdering American Indian Movement activist Anna Mae Pictou Aquash.

John Graham, a Native man from Canada, and Richard Marshall, a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, are accused of killing Aquash on the Pine Ridge Reservation in December 1975. The men were indicted over four years ago but legal issues have delayed the trial repeatedly.

Marshall wants his case separated from Graham's, a move that could affect his trial because federal prosecutors have linked the two men in the same indictment.
