CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Three people charged with the stabbing death of a man on the Wind River Indian Reservation during a confrontation over drugs and money have again denied federal charges.

KTWO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1JUbyLk ) Susan Chippewa pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the June death of Jared Little Whiteman. Byron Spoonhunter and Jaymes Whiteplume denied charges of aiding and abetting first-degree murder during hearings before U.S. Magistrate Judge Kelly Rankin.

They were arraigned Jan. 20 on a superseding indictment filed to correct the spelling of Whiteplume’s first name.

A witness told investigators that he and another man picked up Little Whiteman at his grandmother’s house on June 2 and took him to a trailer on the reservation.

Prosecutors allege Whiteplume held Little Whiteman down while Chippewa and Spoonhunter stabbed him.

Trial is set for March 16.
