ETHETE, Wyo. (AP) - Two men have been sentenced to prison for their roles in the June 2014 killing of an Ethete man on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

KTWO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1JvtRd9 ) Jaymes Leo Whiteplume was sentenced to 39 years for first-degree murder, and Garrett Revere was sentenced to five years for being an accessory after the fact to the murder.

Revere and another man reportedly drove Jared Dean Little Whiteman to a trailer on the reservation, where he was attacked, tied and interrogated about drugs and money.

Little Whiteman’s body was found buried in another area and recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Bureau of Indian Affairs. An autopsy found more than 40 stab wounds on his body.

Susan Chippewa, the lead defendant in the case, will be sentenced Aug. 26.
