CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to his role in a fatal stabbing on the Wind River Indian Reservation has been sentenced to 39 years in federal prison.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/aQxCTu ) Jaymes Whiteplume was sentenced Friday for the June 2, 2014, death of Jared Little Whiteman. Whiteplume and two other people - Susan Chippewa and Byron Spoonhunter - were charged with first-degree murder.
