CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Three residents of the Wind River Indian Reservation face charges in the June stabbing death of Jared Little Whiteman during an apparent argument over drugs and money.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1pDYDAg ) defendant Susan Chippewa admitted cutting his throat. She led investigators to his body, which had been wrapped in carpet and buried.

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 on June 2. The witness said Little Whiteman was later taken to a back room.

An autopsy found he was stabbed 40 times.

Chippewa, Byron Spoonhunter and James Whiteplume face charges of first-degree murder or an alternative accountability charge. They have been arrested but have not appeared in the court and do not appear to have attorneys.
