RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities have confirmed that a third person charged in a stabbing death on the Wind River Indian Reservation is in custody.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman John Powell tells the Riverton Ranger (http://bitly.com/1DbWUtF ) that Byron Spoonhunter is in state custody in Rawlins and will be delivered to U.S. marshals.

Spoonhunter, Susan Chippewa and James Whiteplume are charged with murder and aiding and abetting murder in the June 2 stabbing death of Jared Little Whiteman.

Whiteplume and Chippewa are being held without bond.

Court records say a witness told FBI agents that Little Whiteman was tied to a chair and questioned about drugs and money at a trailer on the reservation. The witness said Little Whiteman was later taken to a back room.

An autopsy found he was stabbed 40 times.
