Northern Arapaho Tribe can file brief in murder case
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals says the Northern Arapaho Tribe of Wyoming can file a brief in the appeal of a tribal member.

Andrew Yellowbear Jr. was convicted in state court of murdering his daughter. The crime occurred in Riverton, a border town that the tribe says remains Indian Country.

The state courts have consistently ruled that Riverton is not Indian Country but the 10th Circuit is giving Yellowbear another chance at showing otherwise.
