FORT YATES, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man is in custody after being accused by federal authorities of sexually assaulting a woman who was later found dead.

Thirty-four-year-old Richmond White Eagle on Monday was charged with felony sexual abuse of a person physically incapable of declining participation. White Eagle was arrested after the body of Jessie Manley was found outside an apartment complex in Fort Yates.

Authorities say witnesses reported seeing the Fort Yates man inside Manley’s apartment Saturday. The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/1E3HKdW ) reports White Eagle told authorities he had sex with Manley while she was passed out on her couch. Authorities say White Eagle and Manley then had an argument which caused Manley to fall.

Manley says he heard a loud noise as Manley hit the concrete, but he didn’t turn back to see if she was injured.

Court records don’t list an attorney for White Eagle.
