Two people have been indicted in connection with the murder of a Seminole Nation man in Oklahoma.

Marshall Scott Dent was 27 years old when he went missing in December 2013. His body was found in January 2014 on land owned by the Sac and Fox Nation.

George Edmond Walker, 38, is accused of beating and killing Dent. He faces charges of murder in the second degree, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Anne Marie Johnson, 37, is accused of being an accessory after the fact. She allegedly helped Walker evade apprehension.

Walker and Johnson are due to go to trial on November 3. Walker is described as an "Indian" under federal law but his tribal affiliation hasn't been reported.

"It's going on two years since the senseless death of my son Marshall," Scott Dent wrote on Facebook last month after the case was unsealed. "And so it begins, those responsible will be held accountable for his death."
